“Blockchain technology has the potential to link insurance entities in a powerful data-sharing framework. The B3i consortium and pilot project can help demonstrate and accelerate this innovation,” said Farron Blanc, Vice President and Innovation Studio Lead, RGAx. “At RGA, we are always excited to partner with those who are trying to achieve similar goals of efficiently deploying capital and knowledge to provide financial protection to society at large.”
In a collaborative effort, members of the B3i initiative will explore the ability of distributed ledger technologies to increase efficiencies in the exchange of data between reinsurance and insurance companies. In order to realize a proof of concept, the participating members will implement a pilot project aimed at transacting reinsurance contracts amongst each other. If Blockchain technology proves to be a viable tool, it could transform the insurance industry through a shared, transparent record of contract-related information. Streamlining communication and transactions would subsequently improve industry processes and provide better insurance services to customers. The Blockchain Insurance Industry Initiative B3i intends to share first results in June 2017.
