S&P Global Ratings and S&P Global Market Intelligence Ratings are excited to host the 2019 European Insurance Conference on Wednesday, 6th November 2019.
The conference will serve you with topical panels featuring key industry leaders, and provide valuable networking opportunities and face-to-face discussions with peers and S&P Global representatives.
Following recent dovish tones and accommodative actions from major global central banks, the insurance industry’s familiar foe – low, or even negative, interest rates – looks to have regained the top spot as a key concern for insurers’ earnings and balance sheets in the coming years. While strong balance sheets, ERM capabilities and established market positions help European insurers to withstand the pressure for now, could this be a losing game for the industry in the long run without a normalization of rates? At the same time, the industry is on the cusp of a fundamental change to the insurance business model as technology and evolving consumer behaviours demand a re-think of the insurance value proposition. On top of this, the evolution of regulation and revolution of accounting add further demands to insurers’ already busy agendas.
Join us in London where we will bring together a number insurance industry executives and thought leaders to discuss these trends and implications for the future of the sector.
Topics and panels will include:
- The impact of the global macroeconomy on insurers’ performance
- Developments in IFRS 17
- Impact of technology, increasing focus on environmental, social and governance risks, and a rapidly growing protection gap
This event is complimentary, but please ensure you register to reserve your seat at the conference as space is limited.
We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an interesting dialogue.
