Risk in Context Podcast: Embedded insurance helps identify key risks and opportunities

Embedded insurance — coverage that is tagged on to the purchase of a non-insurance product or service — is increasingly a key component of what we all subscribe to, lease, share, or buy.

Embedded insurance — coverage that is tagged on to the purchase of a non-insurance product or service — is increasingly a key component of what we all subscribe to, lease, share, or buy. But embedded insurance programs provide benefits that go well beyond a warranty.

Aside from the protection or service benefits for customers, embedded insurance provides manufacturers or sellers with important early warning and claims data that can help them identify and address risks, streamline claims, and pinpoint new opportunities to increase revenue.

In this episode of Risk in Context, Rami Soysa, a client engagement leader at Marsh's International Affinity Practice, and Tim O’Connor, Partner and Warranty Practice leader at Oliver Wyman, discuss how embedded insurance programs are transforming risk management and helping companies take preemptive action to mitigate their risks.
