The certainty, consistency and cost-savings offered by centrally-managed global insurance programmes remain highly attractive to risk and insurance managers with multinational companies in Europe and worldwide.
But regulatory, political and economic volatility and uncertainty mean that risk managers need to work more closely than ever with their partners to make sure they derive maximum benefit and ultimately achieve compliance.
Commercial Risk’s inaugural Global Programmes – Consistency and Certainty conference was held in London on 12 June 2019, and leading global programme experts provided over 150 delegates with the latest essential intelligence on how they need to structure, design and manage their programmes to achieve their goals.
What are the main threats to economic stability over the next five years? What is happening with global trade, sanctions and regulations?
In light of these challenges, what do multinational companies need to do to ensure they are fully prepared to deal with these risks.
How are the benefits of a global programme best sold upwards ultimately to the board and downwards to local managers on the ground?
Leading experts explain how the rules that impact how cross-border coverage is bought and managed have changed and are likely to evolve in major territories and regions of the world.
What is the best way to organise and structure a global programme to achieve consistency, certainty and compliance?
How do you choose your broker and insurer when setting up a global programme? What do the insurer and broker need to offer the risk manager to make sure that the programme works as intended?
What is the best way to manage claims and make sure that they are paid in a timely and compliant manner?
Does blockchain truly offer the seamless, transparent and cost-effective method of managing global programmes that will transform this sector?
How can Blockchain help improve the placement and administration of coverage so that I receive my policy on inception rather than six months later for example?
Can Blockchain help speed up the handling and payment of claims and avoid frustrating and expensive legal complications?
How can Blockchain take cost out of the commercial and industrial insurance market and reduce my costs?
Binance, the major cryptocurrency exchange, recently revealed that hackers stole more than $40m worth of bitcoin from its customers. Can I reassure my CFO that Blockchain really secure before I start placing all my policies and sensitive information on the system?
How could and should captives be used to manage the global programme and draw maximum benefit?
