Over the final five weeks of the year, Argo Group is using this space to share some of the noteworthy decisions it has made, actions it has taken and successes it has achieved in 2016.
This week, Argo Group will continue its look back by reviewing the brightest thinking the people of the company have shared this year. Their thought leadership helps propel Argo Group and shows the central role the company plays in shaping the industry.
Understanding the truth about innovation
Innovation is not invention. It is in part a continuous process through which existing processes and products are improved by changing them in response to the demands of customers, the knowledge of inter-disciplinary teams and the opportunities presented by new technologies. Argo Group CEO Mark E. Watson III and EVP of strategy and business development Nigel Mortimer went online to share their deep insights about innovation and how the company translates this thinking into action.
Harnessing the power of being different and digital
In April, Pedro Purm spoke to A.M. BestTV about how the company he leads is competing and thriving. The president of Argo Seguros Brazil S.A. says the twin pillars of the company’s growth are differentiation and digital distribution. As an example, he pointed to the property insurance the company supplies via a digital platform for high-end bicycles. This niche in the insurance market illustrates Argo Seguros’ effort to uncover and exploit opportunities that separate the company from its competitors. The proprietary digital platform on which this coverage is supplied reflects the company’s success in interacting with customers simply and intimately.
