D2C Panel: Simplicity Is Key For Life and Annuity Insurers

Changing customer expectations and advances in technology are opening the door for new direct-to-consumer distribution approaches in the life and annuity market, according to a panel of business and technology experts. This changes the old paradigm of the product being sold not bought as consumers are now encouraged to be as self-directed as possible. “It's a laboratory for what the future will look like,” said Todd Eyler, senior director and a platform leader at Cognizant. Sponsored by Cognizant. (Oct. 24, 2018).
