Financial Services, Risk Management and Beyond — Tech Entrepreneur, Henna Karna’s Vision for the Future

Henna Karna

“Within the nuances in our (tech) choices lies the wisdom to manifest our future in this zero-trust world.” – Henna Karna.

In a rapidly evolving business landscape driven by technological advancements, seasoned tech entrepreneur Henna Karna has developed a clear and dynamic strategy to revolutionize the approach of innovative firms. 

With her impeccable skills and expertise, she aims to redefine industry standards by corresponding with developments in data, analytics, artificial intelligence (including generative AI), ML, and NLP. Let’s delve into Henna’s considerable future strategy for the risk and insurance industry.

One of the primary concerns for these industries is to find areas where we should be able to reduce the global protection gap to make countries and economies more risk-resilient. To propel this objective, Henna proposes to shift their approach from a policy-oriented mindset to a platform-driven one. 

Embracing a platform-oriented method allows companies to work the ecosystem, adopt an iterative approach, precisely testing methodologies to articulate their values, viability, and requirements. This shift will promote customer loyalty as more people engage with their technology, products, or services, ultimately generating substantial revenues.

Henna recognized that many businesses rely on traditional strategies to generate revenue and improve financial performance. While this approach may effectively achieve short-term goals, it can lead to the paranoia of failure, siloed focus on pieces of the value chain, and limited investments to navigate growth. 

Considering its drawbacks, Henna encourages innovative thinking and solutions in these companies. She urges firms to invest in data ecosystems, as these are the future of the risk management industries. According to Henna, “With GenAI at our doors, it is now quite inevitable that we consider our data architecture. Companies must recognize that each interaction or operation is an opportunity for competing and creating differentiated value – it’s a digitally connected world, where those touchpoints are data points. And those data points become the currency that drives companies’ economic value.”

The Power of Data – Explained by Henna

Henna emphasizes the strategic and disruptive effects of data, urging risk firms to embrace its power to align with the digital world.

Data holds strategic importance as it helps businesses to utilize the known leverages that include but are not limited to increasing purchase frequency, average transaction value, and retaining customers. It can also be disruptive given that it enables companies to find new or anticipated business levers, altering the growth trajectory.

Henna believes if companies lag in capturing interaction points and curating/nurturing data effectively, then their competitors, particularly the non-traditional ones, will gain an advantage at their expense, potentially suboptimizing the entire industry. Therefore, financial services firms, particularly in the risk management, insurance and reinsurance industry, must keep pace with technological advancements.

Given the extensive information handled by insurance and risk companies, Henna advocates for ecosystems that integrate data from multiple platforms and create value through processed insights.

The Future of Data Ecosystems

While data ecosystems can be built on portals and dashboards, Henna believes a multi-sided ecosystem Platform play is more versatile. This bi-directional user/customer interaction ecosystem leverages targeted real-time insights from the customers and provides individual workspaces for unique product co-creation.

Henna’s strategy played out well at AXA XL where she and her team used the motto, “Think Big, Start Small, Move Fast,” to build an evolving Platform ecosystem Platform. Her platform won several global industry awards, including CELENT Innovation award.

An effective ecosystem platform depends on multiple factors, but most importantly, it should meet customer needs and stay applicable for daily use. It should be scalable, reusable, and iterative without compromising quality or cost. It should accommodate all data requirements and be designed for systematic self-learning and self-organizing. As with all things, the wishlist is grand and it is all about the approach and execution. 

The end goal is to create products and solutions that align with a company’s objectives, resulting in higher profitability through better risk selection.

Henna’s commitment to product innovation and excellence will remain her differentiator, as she believes ecosystem Platform play will measurably expand and improve a firm’s future. She sees this platform as a future enabler for thriving organizations in the digital world, accelerating their growth towards recognition and appreciation for navigating complex risks.
