Source: Asia Insurance Review | May 2019
With the theme on ‘Winds of Change’, the conference will address pressing industry issues such as the increasing frequency of extreme weather events caused by climate change, industry disruption and digital transformation, and the sustainability of the insurance/reinsurance business model as operating margins narrow.
While prominent thought-leaders from within and outside the industry share their insights and experience on these issues over three intensive conference sessions, thousands of bilateral business meetings will be held across meeting tables in the Lloyd’s Coffee House and the SweetSpot Café as well as in the private meeting rooms hosted by participating companies on the conference floor.
Launched in 1991, SIRC has established itself as one of the most important events on the Asian reinsurance calendar where leading insurers, brokers and reinsurers gather to take stock of the reinsurance market and set the tone for the renewal season while exploring new opportunities for business cooperation.
The conference, organised by the Singapore Reinsurers’ Association (SRA) with the Reinsurance Brokers’ Association, Singapore (RBAS) as co-organiser and Asia Insurance Review as the official media partner, will draw international decision makers and high-level executives from the insurance, reinsurance and broking fraternities as well as regulators, academics and industry service providers.
