Blog: Turning Liabilities into Assets

Data is the currency of the commercial insurance industry. Learn why leaving data locked in siloed systems will risk it remaining a liability, not an asset.

Web Liabilities to Assets

As you will know, when we deposit money in the bank, we’re not giving the bank an asset. We’re giving them a liability. Banks are tasked with looking after our money and delivering all the services required for us to access it. Upon receipt of our money, the bank seeks to turn the liability into an asset by lending it to a borrower and earning fees for doing so. It’s a simple conversion from one state to another; turning liabilities into assets. 

In the world of commercial insurance, when a client engages a broker, the client’s risk data is equally not an asset. It’s a liability. The broker is tasked with securing the data and providing all the services relating to the client’s risk, such as coverage, renewals, claims, etc. 

Data is the currency of the commercial insurance industry. Leaving data locked in siloed systems will ensure it remains a liability, not an asset.

So, how can a broker convert a liability into an asset, as the banks do? 

Brokers – and by extension, insurers – must leverage data as an asset to their advantage, wherever possible. The introduction of Broker Insights VisionTM (Vision) helps achieve this conversion, by fully leveraging the power of data.
