Big data and digitalization are a unique opportunity to transform the marine insurance industry  and make it attractive for investors, corporation and even more important for a new generation of marine underwriters that can proudly report on many years of positive results. The Big Data and Digitalization Forum was established to reflect the growing importance of new technologies, to raise awareness and share information about key trends and opportunities arising thanks to data and digitalization. IUMI has a responsibility toward the next generation of marine underwriters to put them in the best possible position to leverage these new possibilities and to make them fit for the future.

The Big Data and Digitalization Forum is comprised of marine insurance professionals from different lines of business, IUMI Professional Partners active in the digital space and data analytics, and representatives from technology market leaders to ensure a broad range of views is represented in the Forum.
