Event: Practical Law's Inaugural Insurance Forum 2014

Tuesday, 10 June 2014

About the Forum

The pace of regulatory change is putting existing insurance business models at risk. The FCA is showing clear intention to flex its muscles and ensure that the consumer is protected. 2013 saw a number of the banks facing eye-watering fines and penalties for mis-selling and market manipulation scandals, the likes of which have engulfed the banking industry since the crisis.

Insurers need to adapt quickly to remain ahead of the game; hone their risk management capabilities; focus keenly on the customer; build their analytical capability and develop a culture that fosters innovation and reinvention. Doing this while keeping abreast of developments in financial reporting and compliance presents significant challenges.

Practical Law's inaugural Insurance Forum provides a timely opportunity to examine what impact the reforms will have on the UK insurance market. It will offer you an insight as to how the new legislation will work in practice and give you practical strategies that you can adopt to cope with an insurance landscape in flux so you can maintain competitive advantage as well as preparing for future change.

Attend this Forum and you will be able to:

  • Understand how the FCA and PRA interact with the insurance industry nationally and internationally
  • Determine how to prepare for the impact of emerging legislation on the UK insurance sector.
  • Gain an insight from a brokers perspective as to how they should mitigate conflict between themselves and insurers
  • Capitalise on the potential for big data and prepare yourself for the general data protection regulation
  • Adopt systems and controls to avoid hefty fines and sanctions
  • Deploy practical steps to develop a compliant outsourcing programme
  • Overcome regulatory challenges for insurers and brokers when entering emerging and high-growth markets
