FS1: How Insurance Actuaries Can Be the Heroes of the Post-Pandemic Recovery Via Behavioral Science

(9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. ET)
Description
In this engaging and entertaining opening keynote, you as an insurance actuary will master the knowledge of how you can be the hero of the post-pandemic recovery via behavioral science insights. Cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral economics show that we all tend to miss shifting risks in a time of change due to unconscious dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. Doing so seriously undermines insurance risk management, financial planning, pricing, and other areas crucial for the success of insurance companies. For example, mental blindspots such as the ostrich effect and confirmation bias cause us to deny uncomfortable facts about changing risks, even serious and obvious ones, due to how our brains are wired. Even when we recognize such risks, our colleagues and business partners often miss them. Our typical methods of trying to convince them through facts and arguments often fail, leading to unnecessary conflicts and often disastrously bad insurance decisions. This presentation will offer case studies, best practices, and groundbreaking behavioral science research to provide insurance actuaries with the most critical skills to be the heroes of the post-pandemic recovery by helping themselves recognize and avoid such risks in the post-pandemic world and successfully convincing your fellow insurance professionals – including in leadership roles – to do so as well.
