Upcoming webinars

Climate risk analytics: Creating resilient infrastructure for stress testing and modelling

Thursday, 28 October 2021, 2pm CET | 1pm BST

As we ramp up on initiatives from regulators and banks for climate risk regulations, net zero commitments, stress testing, and managing stakeholder expectations, the financial industry is seeking data, methodologies, and execution details on how exactly to address these. In particular, regulatory climate risk stress testing/ scenario analysis is dominating the risk manager’s agenda. The reality is that there is little uniformity of approach or actionable clarity on how exactly to proceed.

In this webinar, we explore industry issues and challenges in building and using models for climate risk and how advanced analytics and technology can go beyond identifying and managing climate risks to identifying growth opportunities.

Smart risk enterprise: How can risk managers enable growth and secure a competitive advantage?

Wednesday, 10 November 2021, 4pm GMT | 11am EST

The risk function needs to transform its operating model with new ways of working and digital at the core, while offering much needed assurance and catalysing the growth for the organisation.

In this webinar, we will hear from risk leaders who are heading such transformations within their own organisations and discuss:

  • What are CROs’ approach and strategies to changing priorities?
  • What are the key constructs of the future of risk enterprise, capabilities, skills, operating models, and more?
  • What are the key challenges and success factors in driving a futuristic risk enterprise?

Developing an investment strategy to meet growing environmental, social and governance demands

Wednesday, 17 November 2021, 3pm CET | 2pm GMT

With low yields continuing, it is an exciting time for insurance investment offices as purpose-driven investment strategies are formed to meet return requirements whilst aligning with ESG commitments.  

In this webinar, our panelists will discuss:

  • How ESG demands have changed insurance investment strategy
  • How you can achieve alignment of new and existing investments with ESG commitments
  • What risks ESG commitments create for insurance investment offices, particularly with respect to overarching net-zero ambitions

...and much more!
