True to its mission, Insurance Journal Publishing Group is continuing to reinvent information to better meet the needs of the industry, its professionals and executives! 

A one-stop shop for information and services, our portal is a powerful tool designed for professionals and decision-makers that can fuel your growth. It is the only one of its kind in the market. 

For and by the industry 

The portal we are launching today is truly your portal. It was built based on your opinions expressed in our 2018 survey. In total, 4,300 executives and professionals answered our questions – an impressive response rate. 

The Portal contains everything you asked for: news about the life and health insurance and property and casualty insurance industries, economic trends, entrepreneurship, health, and social changes that affect insurance. 

A powerful personalized information tool 

More than just a media platform, the Insurance Portal is a resource that can drive your growth. But a tool is effective only if it is adapted to the user. This is why our portal can be customized to meet your specific needs. This fundamental capability will guide its evolution. 

For example, you can click on tags found in each article to easily analyze an issue in depth. 

In addition, you can customize your profile to easily specify the content and frequency of the digital bulletins that keep you up-to-date on the latest news. The complete daily bulletin, offered by default, is ideal for people who want to be sure not to miss any breaking news. If you want to follow only the most important news, the weekly summary bulletin may be a good option. Personalized bulletins let you choose which precise themes you want to follow and how often you wish to receive them. 

In today’s world, information is strategic capital. With that in mind, we have also established an email-based alert system that notifies you as soon as an article that meets your criteria is published. Whether you want to follow the news about a competitor or supplier, alerts guarantee that you will never have to miss out on any news about a topic or product type. 

To benefit from this personalized experience, simply create a free profile. You will then be recognized each time you visit the portal. If you already have a profile on our old website, your profile will automatically migrate to the portal. Just enter your email address and choose a new password. You will only have to do this once.

A multi-level portal tailored to your objectives 

Do you simply want to keep pace with what’s new in the industry? The basic level, available for free, gives you access to our continuous news headlines and alerts and personalized daily and weekly electronic bulletins.  

Eager to fuel the growth of your career and business? Our PRO level lets you hone your expertise and anticipate trends thanks to our exclusive online and print content. The PRO level includes a subscription to the magazine Insurance Journal, which offers special features for subscribers, along with access to articles published daily on the portal (exclusive headlines, scoops and web extras that supplement the magazine’s in-depth articles). You will also get access to all the products and services of the portal with a single password. All this for as little as $9.95 per month.

Our goal: To save you time by providing a personalized tool that reflects your needs and interests.

Why a paid subscription?

As you know, the media industry is being revolutionized by digital technology and online titans like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon (GAFA) and Microsoft 

We could have chosen to streamline our resources, pare our content offering, cut jobs and reduce our services. On the contrary, my philosophy is inspired by a quote from Serge de Ganay, president of the private bank Quilvest in Paris: “Don’t forget that the businesses that win are those that continuously invent the future and build development projects regardless of the general economic climate.” 

Our new portal is a response to this upheaval on the media scene. We are not afraid to invest to adapt our service offering to technological changes and new realities by delivering enriched information on multiple platforms. What’s more, journalists have joined our team to produce new content.

We’ve only just begun

Society is changing at an accelerating pace due to the digital revolution. There is no escaping it! And it’s not over yet. We must constantly innovate. We are committed to help industry professionals and business leaders better meet their clients’ present and future insurance needs. The launch of our portal is a first step in this direction. Many other value-added services will follow this fall as part of our efforts to better fulfil the mission that has driven us for over 25 years: to give you all the information you need to maximize your growth in a constantly evolving market. 

Our exciting adventure continues.
