PARIMA Digital Conference 2021 - Resilience Week V2.1

Captive insurance in the age of COVID-19

15 September

Asia Pacific


With COVID-19 and its variants still very much a real problem around the world, multinational companies need to keep adapting quickly to the ever-changing situation. And ensuring employees have the right benefits to look after themselves and their families is a significant part of that.

Even though many governments put in place some form of extra financial support due to the economic impact of COVID-19 on employees, in many cases that support is disappearing, putting an even great emphasis on employers to address any gaps and ensure their employees have financial security in uncertain times.

To finance these crucial benefits in the most efficient way, multinationals are looking at how a captive can help align their business strategies and transfer risks more efficiently.

Here’s a quick look at the agenda for the event.
