Hartford has long been known as the insurance capital of the world, but will that change now that insurance giant, Aetna, is moving its headquarters out of the state?
This hour, we examine the past and future of insurance in Connecticut — and beyond.
We talk about the origins of the industry and its evolution over time — from Ancient Egypt to modern America — with author and former risk management consultant Richard Rudolph.
We find out how the digital age and new technologies have changed the very nature of insurance and learn how Connecticut companies have responded.
Do you work in insurance? How are you seeing the industry changing?
