Overview

The 2018 Moody’s Insurance Summit will once again gather leading insurance industry practitioners and credit analysts to explore industry trends and challenges with a mix of high-profile speakers and interactive breakout discussions.

As the environment surrounding insurance companies continues to change dramatically with ultra-low interest rates and an increase in natural disaster risks, insurers are asked to revise their traditional insurance operations in response to standardization of global regulations and new risks and make progress on numerous fronts simultaneously. Optimising financial performance, implementing a significant change to financial reporting, and enhancing environmental and social practices - all at time of great technological change.

Key Themes:

Business Insights:
How are insurers utilising enhanced modelling and analytics to optimise their financial performance in today's business
'All Change' for Financial Reporting:
What are the challenges and opportunities driven by the forthcoming IFRS 17 reporting standard
Adapting to Changes in Regulatory and Operating Environment:
How are insurers integrating factors such as regulatory and capital regime changes, rising (but low) interest rate environment, and technological advancements and addressing potential risks in their decisions
This complimentary conference is open to Moody's Investors Service subscribers,
those with an interest in Moody's Analytics Insurance Solutions, and leading insurance industry experts.
