Home Finance Events 2018 Guernsey Insurance Forum 2018

11 October 2018 - London

1:30PM - 5:30PM

For more than 300 years London’s insurance market has weathered many storms. The kind of resilience insurance offers its customers has been demonstrated by the industry as it has overcome World Wars and many other geopolitical events.

The issues facing the industry today are more than significant for insurance practitioners in London and in Guernsey.

The 2018 Guernsey Insurance Forum will look at the challenges in detail and the industry’s resilience, both inherent and driven by innovation.

This year's event will feature a technical showcase, a panel session moderated by Naga Munchetty, followed by a keynote speech from Karl Hennessy, CEO of Carrier Solutions - Aon

The technical showcase will cover the implications of Brexit and what it means for you and your business. Three expert speakers will consider the impact of various scenarios, key issues for risk managers, and matters to be addressed in insurance contracts.

The panel session, titled 'Substance in the insurance industry', will discuss:

  • ‘bricks & mortar’ vs ‘mind & management’
  • bits and bytes – impact of technology
  • practical substance considerations
  • outsourcing / offshoring

Our panel will explain their reasons for confidence in captives, and how they believe the challenges facing the industry bring risk and opportunity.

Our keynote speaker Karl Hennessy, CEO of Carrier Solutions at Aon, will look at ways insurance can provide solutions for emerging risks, integrated products, new options in the market, and what he sees as huge opportunity for innovation in the market.

The Guernsey Insurance Forum has rapidly become a significant event in the insurance calendar in London. Please encourage your contacts to attend what will be an informative and engaging discussion, with plenty of networking time during the afternoon.

The captive market as we know it may be in decline, but can the sector bounce back in an innovative way?
