Providing policymakers and key industry stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss the future for the UK insurance sector.

Delegates at this conference will consider the impact of the EU referendum result on the sector, including its implications for the future of passporting, skills, investment and market stability, as well as options for the future of Solvency II and its impact on both stability and competition. Further sessions will focus on latest trends and challenges facing insurers - including the future use of big data and ongoing initiatives to tackle insurance fraud - and will also bring out discussion on how policy in areas such as Flood Re and personal injury reform will impact on the future of the sector.

It is also timed to discuss the findings of the Treasury Select Committee inquiry into EU insurance regulation, as well as other ongoing policy developments such as the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) consultations on cyber insurance underwriting risk and the sector’s ability to deal with market turning events.

Speakers and other delegates at this conference are expected to be a senior and informed group numbering 120, including senior officials from HMT, PRA, FCA and other relevant departments as well as representatives from life and general insurance sectors, brokers, business.
