This is the fifth call in a series of A2ii-IAIS webinars on the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and implications for insurance supervisors. This call will take place on 18, June 2020, and will entail a supervisory dialogue on digitalisation and the impact of Covid-19 on supervisory processes. In particular, this webinar will seek to cover the challenges faced by supervisory authorities in the transition to remote working and supervision, the measures that have been introduced to facilitate remote distribution to ensure that consumers still have access to products, some examples of innovations in response to Covid-19 and in terms of the longer term opportunities that Covid-19 provides for digitalisation.
Call background: Jurisdictions around the world are taking measures to protect their populations against the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The global pandemic has had a significant impact on an individual country’s economy and also far-reaching consequences for the financial sector in general including the insurance sector. To help supervisors adapt to this fast-changing environment, learn from their peers and get input from experts, the A2ii together with the IAIS launched a new webinar series on the topic.
The webinars have been looking at both the financial stability and the consumer protection implications of covid-19 on the insurance sector. A special focus has been given to the situation in emerging and developing economies including the impact on vulnerable populations, recognising the higher personal economic risk they face due to a lack of resources and the fact they are disproportionately more likely to be uninsured or underinsured for healthcare.
This webinar will be held on the Webex platform and in three different languages - English, French and Spanish at the following times:
9am (CEST) English || 11am (CEST) French || 3pm (CEST) English || 5pm (CEST) Spanish
Please note that this series is restricted to supervisors only.
