Virtual Asia Life Insurance Summit
Theme: “Life & Health in Digital Era”
The life insurance industry has weathered onslaughts from multiple fronts - a global pandemic, persistently low interest rates, regulatory changes and changing customer expectations. Health became a big thrust of the life sector even before the COVID-19 pandemic broke all boundaries.
The Virtual Asia Life Insurance Summit will bring together leading experts and players to provide a comprehensive analysis of the changing life insurance landscape in Asia today. It will plot the route to profitability and growth with focus on customers, products and distribution.
Virtual Asia Motor Insurance Conference
Theme: “Rethinking Motor Insurance for the Next Generation of Mobility”
Underwriting profits rose globally in 2020 as mass lockdowns forced drivers off the roads.

It is against this landscape that the 8th Asia motor insurance conference explores industry themes such as pricing insurance premiums based on usage and building in resilience and reform against future shocks. Join leading stakeholders to discuss the future of motor insurance in the new mobility ecosystem to not only survive – but to thrive.
