The world is constantly changing and in order to enable that change the insurance industry needs to adapt with it. The challenges of COVID19 this year on our businesses and clients has brought about further consideration around systemic risk.

This presentation will contemplate systemic risk and beyond Terrorism and COVID19 what other risks might be out there currently or forthcoming. It will explore the challenges these types of risk place on traditional insurance models and the differing ways of responding and preparing for that risk.

  • Identify why systemic risks are different and how they challenge traditional insurance principles
  • Discover what other risks might be out there
