Friday 04.05.2018 // Asia Insurance Review // Dr. Kai-Uwe Schanz

Dr Kai-Uwe Schanz of Dr. Schanz, Alms & Company cautions against the disruption debate raging across the global insurance landscape taking on a life of its own. Time to pause, recap a few facts and question a few things.

This article is slightly contrarian as it pours some cold water on the disruption hype that appears to have taken hold of the global insurance community.
