A global shortage of experienced executives threatens to undermine the insurance industry at a crucial moment
While growth opportunities arise as middle classes and property values swell across emerging markets, geopolitical instability threatens the viability of new investments. For traditional markets in Europe and North America, profitability is being threatened by increasing regulation, aging populations, and disruptive technologies.
To overcome these challenges, insurers must embrace technology and consumer analytics to drive business innovation and attract world-class executives from a shrinking talent pool.
In the Canadian insurance industry, more than the talent pool is shrinking. The sector itself is continuing to consolidate, creating a highly competitive market from which some clear winners may emerge over the next five years. With margins compressed, Canadian insurance providers will be looking to executives with long-term visions and systems innovation experience to help trim unnecessary layers of structure and process, drive operational efficiencies and prepare for a leaner, more focused future.
Faced with an increasingly commoditized business environment and an ever-expanding risk landscape, Canadian firms need the best talent available. We can address your industry’s critical demands by recruiting proven and promising insurance professionals who can seize emerging technology opportunities, while understanding financial constraints. Whether in P&C or life insurance—whether the need is risk, compliance, underwriting, claims and distribution, or product development—we can help you find the talent help you need.
