EVENT INFORMATION

 

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact social health and economic activity, both in North America and across the globe, the advancement in vaccination development has bolstered the prospect of an increasingly stable market outlook in 2021.

Various geopolitical challenges continue to loom over the investment landscape for insurers. Namely whether Biden will make significant changes related to the Paris climate treaty, the Iran nuclear deal, and whether tensions will continue to flare between the US and China. All of this, in addition to concerns related to what economic recovery will look like, how fiscal policy will be implemented to support economic recovery, and central bank behaviour.

Insurers will face various regulatory challenges in 2021, for example, how will underwriting change as insurers increasingly use artificial intelligence systems and big data? With the backdrop of social unrest that has persisted throughout 2020, how will insurers respond to systemic racial discrimination that have been spotlighted by regulatory and advocacy groups? How will parameters of what is considered climate risk change?

Created with the input of insurers in the North American region, Insurance Investor Live | North America 2021 will give attendees the opportunity to explore these key issues through debate, discussion, and presentation. Explore current issues, challenges and trends alongside your peers and industry pioneers at this exclusive live event.
