17.04.18 Director Forum – Areiel Wolanow – Finserv Experts
“LMTOM Innovation – Learn how distributed ledger technology enables the London market to envision a new, decentralised business model”
This important Director Forum Event – hosted by Moore Stephens at their London offices – will be led and presented by Areiel Wolanow at 4.30pm to 6.30pm on 17.4.18.
In 2017 the London insurance market asked a simple question. “Could a new, more effective, significantly lower cost operating model be created for premium and claims processing between brokers and carriers using emerging innovative technologies?”
In response, the London Market Target Operating Model (LMTOM) program commissioned a feasibility study to craft a vision of how such a model would work and define the business case for implementing such a model. This study was completed last year, and the answer was an unequivocal ‘yes’.
The findings of this study, and LMTOM’s vision for this model, have now been made public. The lead solution architect and author of the business case for this feasibility study was Areiel Wolanow. We have invited him to present and manage this important DHN Director Forum.
This will be a highly interactive session. Areiel will be walking us through the findings of the study and facilitating an open discussion with you and your peers about the broader impact that blockchain and distributed ledger technology will have on how insurance is sold and delivered around the world.
A White Paper has just been published. You can find it at: https://tomsupports.london/news/lm-tom-innovation-explores-decentralising-accounting-and-claims

About DHN Director Forums.
DHN Director Forums are aimed at Chairmen/women, Executive and Non-Executive Directors – and those who them. Director Forums are working, interactive and creative groups focused on key business issues – usually at 4.30pm to 6.30pm – followed by networking over a glass of wine – and are ideally suited to active executives looking for a short, sharp immersion in a specific topic, generally seen as topical, sensitive or tricky and in the company of others with similar interests. Director Forums, part of the Devonshire House Network, are also valuable networking events – and designed to fit in unobtrusively to your daily work routines. http://www.devonshirehousenetwork.co.uk/dhn-director-forums/
