KUALA LUMPUR, May 8 (Bernama) -- Insurance industry players will gather at the 2017 LIMRA LOMA Operational Strategies conference on May 22-23, to help them prepare for the wave of technology flooding the sector.

"Speakers at this conference will share insights into satisfying the changing expectations of today’s customers and employees,” said LIMRA and LOMA Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Ian Watts in a statement.

He cited a 2016 LIMRA study which found that the internet was becoming a more valuable source of information than financial professionals, when researching insurance (life, disability, long-term care) and annuity products.

LIMRA is a worldwide research, learning and development organisation, which provides its members with the latest insight and analysis on retirement, insurance and distribution, helping them develop effective business strategies that positively impact the bottom line.

The Life Office Management Association (LOMA) is an educational organisation that focuses on the life insurance business and develops administrative and technical courses.


The Life Industry Association of Malaysia (LIAM) is the supporting organisation of the conference to be held at the Le Meridian Hotel.

LIAM in the statement said its Vice President and Chairman of the Industry Promotion Committee Ramzi Toubassy, would address the gathering of international audience in his opening remarks.

The speakers include Robin Speculand, international bestselling author on strategy implementation, who will explore eight critical areas of strategy implementation and Karl Ricanek, co-founder, chief information officer and chief data scientist, Lapetus Solutions, Inc, who will discuss the emergence of unique technologies, including a demonstration of “selfie” underwriting.

Others include Jeremy Blain, regional managing director, Cegos Asia Pacific, who will use live polling and recent organisational change research to demonstrate what disruption looks like and what it means to the future of your workplace.

A panel of executives will discuss key components of a successful talent management strategy and the role that human resource plays in finding, attracting and retaining top talent.

Residents in Malaysia who are interested to attend the conference can receive a special discount of US$300 (RM1,300.50) off the standard conference rate by using promo code VIP300 at registration, via "".

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Banker’s Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashier’s Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
