Managing risk in an era of disruption

Insurance Risk is delighted to announce that the 5th annual Insurance Risk North America Conference will take place on Wednesday, 16th November at The Westin, New York.

In a current era of disruption, there is a growing need amongst insurers to manage emerging risks and to focus on the perennial concern over regulatory compliance. Over the last couple of months we've seen some interesting shifts in the market as firms try to adapt to the new normal. We've seen firms stop underwriting annuities, move towards illiquid assets and a host of firms employing new and innovative investment strategies as the search for yield in a low interest rate environment continues.

Now in its 5th year, the 2016 Insurance Risk North America conference will address some of these very concerns and tackle some of the most pressing issues being faced by the North American insurance industry. Through a perfect mixture of keynote addresses, panel discussions, live interviews and presentations this event will provide its delegates thought-provoking insights, solutions to critical issues, and will enable the exchange of good practice with your peers to ensure that you stay ahead of the latest regulatory developments.

The packed agenda will feature a keynote presentation, roundtables, presentations and multiple networking breaks.
