A total of 21 delegates of 20 organisations from 13 countries attended the seminar to share knowledge and expertise on the (re)insurance market. Among the countries represented were China, Japan, Taiwan, the US, Turkey, and Mauritius.
The seminar programme included Korean Re’s presentations on the company’s underwriting policies and business operations, the overview of the Korean insurance industry including major market developments and case-study presentations on large-loss events. Lectures were also provided on issues like alternative risk transfer and natural catastrophe modelling. In addition, Korean Re organised field trips to various industrial sites across Korea.
Since it was first launched in 1979, the annual seminar has been attended by more than 600 officials from over 250 entities. The aim of the seminar has been to promote information exchange and discussion on ways to advance the global insurance industry. It has also helped Korean Re build strong business networks throughout the world, contributing to its global business expansion.
