Geopolitical Risks

The plunging of the price of oil combined with political instability in many oil producing countries and their neighbours makes a volatile combination. This session will consider the risk from the perspective of international oil and gas consultancy, a risk manager and an insurance company.

International travel and safety

International travel and safety

International business travelers are exposed to a wider range and greater severity of risks than they would usually face at home, from ships’ emergencies to poor traffic security, kidnap and ransom, terrorism and outbreaks of deadly disease, all challenges of the early 21st century. How can you prepare your corporate travel and safety strategy to provide for any thinkable situation of emergency. And how can you identify good preparedness and surveillance measures. how can you train and deal with the authorities, the relatives, the media, twitter and the like, the employees, how to be prepared for and manage the worst case scenario.

Climate changes and Political Risks

Climate changes and Political Risks

Following the 2013 FERMA Forum, where we analyzed the challenges and possible approaches of climate change, we examine the Natural catastrophe response through case studies and talk about emergency response when all resources are rare. And finally to answer to the question: could we make a link between climate change and political risks?

Cyber

Cyber

The threat from cyber risks has become ever clearer and more disturbing in the two years since the last Forum. This workshop will look at current cyber risk trends - with case studies of how these risks are affecting organisations. It will consider the human aspect to managing cyber risks, what is happening in the areas of potential government intervention and standards, and why businesses are not buying cyber insurance as predicted.

14:00 — 15:15 Innovation

Value of Insurance

Value of Insurance

Have you been internally challenged on the question of the value of insurance? This workshop is about discussing and developing an adequate answer (and underlying methodology) that reaches beyond expensed premium and paid claims and considers different perspectives of looking at insurance and its value to the company. These perspectives include different organizational levels as well as different functions (e.g. HR, Accounting, Treasury, CFO) within the organization.

14:00 — 15:15 Innovation

Emerging risks

Emerging risks

From our highly interconnected and complex world, new uncertainties are continually emerging. Mostly they are intangible. Organisations need a framework which allows them to manage risks that they do not yet know about and take advantage of opportunities that are also new.
16:00 — 17:30 Innovation

Presidential Debate

Capitalizing on Opportunities for Innovation

“Insurance Innovation can occur if an insurance company grasps three main points: it must identify and understand a problem, come up with the ideas to tackle the problem and skilfully execute a solution.” Extract from Three Thinks Insurers Must Do to Innovate – Tower Watson 2015

 

The insurance industry has a history stretching back three hundred years, the roots of which coincide with the early stages of the Industrial Revolution. The soft market is the "new normal", we are in a period of industry consolidation and in the times of the Technology Revolution. Innovation can be sustainable, typically slow moving or disruptive, typically game changing. The Panel will consider how the insurance industry is innovating by taking today's solutions and making them better and by taking more radical steps that may fundamentally change the way the industry operates.
