Topics 2/2014

The digital age is progressing more quickly than ever and has already changed production conditions in many industries. We in the insurance and financial sectors also have to prepare for fundamental change. But what impact will digitalization have on the economy as a whole? Are we on the verge of mass unemployment and permanently low interest rates? Or will digital technology lead to a period of sustained growth? We discuss these topics in the current issue of Topics Magazine.


Significant changes are taking place in another sector as well: unmanned aircraft are being used commercially with increasing frequency, for example in monitoring technical facilities or in agriculture. Yet legal standards for their deployment are only now beginning to be developed worldwide. Find out how insurers can best deal with this situation.
