East India Room, Raffles Hotel, 1 Beach Road, Singapore 189673

2015 has been a year of uncertainty for the Asia region with macroeconomic developments in China a key focus for stakeholders and observers alike. Beyond this we have seen turbulence in the commodity markets, currency challenges for a number of countries and various notable political developments.

Aon’s second annual Insights Asia seminar returns to Singapore, and we are delighted to announce that this year’s event is sponsored by the global trade credit insurer Coface.

At Aon Insights Asia 2015 we will discuss all of the above and more, and are delighted to welcome Julien Marcilly, Chief Economist for Coface, as our keynote speaker. There will also be a client panel discussion and Q&A focusing on the impact for the trade credit insurance market and the opportunities and challenges presented to our clients, insurers and banks as a result.
