The SOA and Plug and Play relationship will allow InsurTech start-ups to validate their technology and modeling processes with actuaries. In turn, SOA members will have an exclusive look inside the world of emerging technologies. These efforts will help with the development of fair and financially-sound insurance products to better serve consumers.
The strategic partnership with Plug and Play demonstrates the SOA’s commitment to providing its members with dynamic learning experiences, rewarding volunteer opportunities, and collaborative events where they can learn from the experiences and ideas of peers around the world. Through this partnership SOA members and start-ups can share best practices and advance ideas for the benefit of the insurance industry, regulators and the public. The SOA and Plug and Play officially announce this partnership to support an exchange of knowledge between actuaries and start-ups. Learn below about the variety of ways to get involved.
