Podcast: how the life companies are fighting the digital war

NMA online producer Ollie Smith sits down with Aviva head of retirement Alistair McQueen to discuss whether life companies are managing to stay ahead of the digital curve.

Podcast: how the life companies are fighting the digital war

Nowadays, everything can be done at the touch of the button.

This week we ask how are the big old life companies keeping up with the digital revolution. There is certainly a lot of evidence that they are trying. But their image lags behind that of the nimble tech firms we are used to hearing about at conferences and exhibitions. Is that entirely fair? 

We sat down with Aviva's head of retirement and saving Alistair McQueen to probe the company's efforts to disrupt itself.

You can hear all about how Aviva tried initially to develop an internal digital proposition, and then failed. And how it came up with its 'digital garage' in order to challenge itself from the heart of the digital roundabout in London. 

All that and more, plus the usual weekly quiz! You can listen to the episode in full above. But please do subscribe to the podcast by clicking here, and if you're feeling generous, leave us a nice review.
