This forum served as a common place about the Big Data, or the data that internet users leave while they are online, and the changes that those data are introducing in the sector of personal insurances.

As the speakers highlighted, Big Data can be considered an opportunity if the information is used as a tool for advanced predictive models as pricing, reserving, risk selection, analysis of profiles, internal models under Solvency II and others that will provoke a bigger knowledge and better management of the risk assumed.

This event could be seen via video streaming on RED CUMES webpage who, in collaboration with AGERS, were in charge of transmitting this journey.
