ERM in Insurance webinar - Board risk governance in insurance - making it work

Date: 15 July 2020, 13:30 - 15:00

To register for this webinar, please click here

Insurance companies are in the business of managing risks, and insurers’ board risk governance has a critical role to play in ensuring that risks are well-managed and business opportunities captured. Organisations can struggle to put in place truly effective risk governance that operates efficiently while addressing the particular nature of insurance companies.

This round-table session brings together a number of expert practitioners to provide different perspectives and discuss the characteristics that can help organisations to develop effective and efficient board risk governance that works well in an insurance context. This will help attendees to understand the perspectives of different stakeholders, understand the challenges that can hamper effectiveness and efficiency, in the context of insurance and regulation, and therefore help members to consider the operation of risk governance in their organisations and consider how it may be enhanced in future.
