A Prudential future. How AI is underpinning long term business value for one of the world’s biggest insurers

Prudential is one of the world’s insurance industry giants, with 24 million customers worldwide and more than £600 billion under management.  In 2015 it commenced a digital transformation programme that led to Michael Natusch’s appointment to lead its global AI strategy.  Today Prudential is using AI and machine learning to revolutionise communications with customers and employees; to accelerate claims processing and to nail regulatory compliance.  It’s already seeing the returns in terms of cost savings in the £10s of millions and a dramatically improved customer experience.
