Aon’s Insurance Companies’ Forum 2019 – Event Summary

The day in a nutshell...

Waiting for the market cycle to recover is no strategy for future success said Lloyd’s CEO, John Neal, in his keynote address to delegates. Going on to detail how the Lloyd’s market is responding to a fast-changing risk landscape – including the anticipated launch of a new prospectus for 2019 and beyond – Neal set the pace for a day’s discussion and debate on a wide range of issues impacting insurers and reinsurers.

These included: What are the implications of the regulatory focus on individual accountability? What are the big trends in UK and US financial lines? Can insurers get to grips with their huge ‘silent cyber’ exposures? How can insurers adapt to maximise the value – and minimise the threats – from the rapid growth of technology in areas like AI and machine learning? How best can insurers create deal value through their approach to human capital in an M&A situation? And, how can insurers innovate to keep product coverage relevant?

All these questions and more were addressed at the forum by leading commentators across the insurance and legal sector; offering their opinions and thoughts at a time Neal described as a ‘generational inflexion point’ for the insurance and reinsurance sector.
