The future of insurance asset protection in the metaverse

In Brief

  • "The metaverse could offer an experience that maintains that personal face-to-face interaction in the digital model, when you're able to introduce more visually engaging ways to help buyers understand product features and tradeoffs."
  • "Anything that has value against it, and [virtual assets] are predicted to have significant value against, will have to have different insurance products that will have to be developed to protect that value going forward."
  • "I think the industry is evolving itself even beyond the metaverse. There are big changes coming to the industry; five to 10 years from now, we'll have driverless cars; there will be a lot of uncertainty in weather patterns and climate; and we'll have people actually operating and exchanging money through crypto currencies and exchanges. Big changes."
