Pandemic Risk: Opportunities to Improve Insurability - Public Dialogue

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted economic activity in countries around the world and has subsequently undermined the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  This disruption has resulted in significant losses that are likely to be absorbed by policyholders since pandemic-related risks are inherently challenging and complex to insure. However, the pandemic does provide an opportunity for the insurance sector to explore the availability of innovative products that respond to emerging large-scale risks. It also provides an opportunity for the private and public sectors, including insurance regulators, to play a role in finding a viable solution and supporting financial resilience against future pandemics. 

Join us in discussing these topics on 25 November at the A2ii-IAIS Public Dialogue on Pandemic Risk: Opportunities to Improve Insurability. Participants will hear from speakers representing international organisations, practitioners from the insurance industry and select supervisory authorities who will share their experiences as it relates to addressing the pandemic risk gap and the role that governments, insurance supervisors and the insurance sector as a whole can play in pandemic risk initiatives.

This webinar will be open to all stakeholders and will take place at 14:00 CET in English (with simultaneous Spanish and French interpretation). It will last one hour and will take place via WebEx.
