ICEF2015: “Emerging Threats and Opportunities”

By all accounts, powerful forces are forming just outside the insurance industry's doors. As an executive, you need to decide: Should we barricade the entrance or put out the welcome mat?

The 2015 Executive Forum is designed to help you differentiate between threats and opportunities and determine strategies that will allow you to survive and thrive in either case.

We are seeing traditional and non-traditional organizations creating products and distribution strategies to take a portion of premium from established entities. We are seeing other initiatives that will reduce or eliminate risk from existing sources.

The result? The top and bottom line may be smaller for traditional risks, and the competitors will be more targeted and aggressive.

This forum for P&C insurance executives will examine the threats and opportunities facing the industry as we know it in Canada today. As many of the marketplace shifts are already being driven or enabled by advances in technology, insuring customers and helping them to better manage risk will often be influenced by technology as well.
