The World in 2040’ Series has been developed by Futurologist Ray Hammond, on behalf of Allianz Partners, as part of the Group’s commitment to anticipating customer needs in the years ahead.
The Series will take the form of a number of reports, which will be released over the course of 2019, predicting what the world will look like in 2040 in the context of Allianz Partners’ specific areas of expertise: international health, assistance, automotive and travel insurance. The reports examine a wide range of future trends and topics, which include how robots and automation will transform everyday living, from work to the home; how multiple medical revolutions will improve and extend life; and the potential impact of driverless and pilotless cars, trains and planes.
As the world faces ever accelerating change and accompanying global challenges, Allianz Partners is dedicated to looking forward and innovating to be ready to deliver for the customers of the future.
