This year marks the 55th International Insurance Society Global Insurance Forum. To have not only survived, but to have grown in size and stature in the industry, the forum has clearly offered something unique and special in a period of proliferating insurance conferences. This year’s event, in Singapore on 18-21 June, will demonstrate why the GIF is worth the time of the industry thought leaders who participate each year.
The theme of the 2019 forum is ‘Insurance Reimagined: Global Issues – Asian Insights’. It is increasingly evident that our industry is not merely experiencing incremental changes in products and distribution, but is rapidly evolving into an entirely different mix of risk and customer interaction. This is a global phenomenon, of interest to insurers from around the world. A study of the challenges and opportunities of this new insurance marketplace can yield especially valuable insights from Asian industry experts.
The Asia Pacific region is not only the global leader in economic and insurance market growth, but is a hotbed of innovation in digitisation, mobile technology, social media and other processes and techniques that are of keen interest to insurers around the world.
The 2019 forum boasts a stellar line up of speakers and topics. Sessions include the presentation of a custom research study of what keeps the C-suite up at night, driving success through the customer experience, InsurTech disrupters and enablers, the technology revolution in healthcare, global trade and the role of insurance, winning strategies employed by multinationals.
Speakers addressing these issues include AIG CEO Brian Duperreault, AXA chairman Denis Duverne, IIS chairman and Aviva Digital CEO Chris Wei, Peak Re CEO Franz Josef Hahn, Monetary Authority of Singapore Tharman Shanmugaratnam, IDF secretary general Ekhosuehi Iyahen and many other leaders. A
