  • Do they know what the next ‘outlier’ may be, or how to identify it?
  • Is there a need to rethink risk management frameworks and methodologies?
  • What lessons have they learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on risk, insurance and business continuity management?
  • How has the insurance industry responded to the pandemic and what new developments are on the radar?
