    Excellent commentary on the opportunity to change insurance for the better for the consumer. Existing players and new entrants haven’t focused on the key problem which is the cost of distribution. This is the real opportunity for those that want to succeed and make a difference. Current technology makes this is possible.

    Thank you for the great article.

    I think a big part of the problem is the current value chain where brokers hand over customers to providers. The future, I think, lies with “super brokers” that manage the customer relationship for the lifetime of the policy supported by risk carriers (ie life offices without back offices). This model, with copious self-service, reduces distribution costs and improves customer service levels.
