Here’s what’s on the agenda

Risk management challenges under Covid-19, the first ESG crisis under SII

As the Covid-19 outbreak leaves an increasingly embattled and vulnerable global economy in its wake, the importance of balance sheet risk management concerning both assets and liabilities has never been more evident. Investments are impacted via increased market volatility and yield dislocation, whilst liabilities incur increased claim incidence and severity, with associated operational risks.

In this webinar we will focus on market and operational risk. We will discuss:

  • How insurers are managing investment risks in the challenging market environment
  • How market turbulence has changed insurers’ appetite for illiquidity risk
  • The use of an ad hoc ORSA to reflect the crisis scenario
  • How to manage operational risk in longer term planning scenarios

Covid-19: How CROs are currently navigating through this difficult time?

Our CROs will hold a 45-minute interactive session with 15 minutes for Q&A on what impact Covid-19 has had on the supply chain, credit, operational risk, project/people management, customer expectations, contingency planning, stress-testing and more.

How ready can risk management be for black swan events such as pandemics? Bringing our RiskMinds community together, this CRO panel discussion will also look at how we can proactively work through this crisis to understand what may be recoverable and what may not be. How can we practically more forward whilst mitigating potential risk factors and ultimately returning to profitability?

Managing non-financial risk during a crisis: applying lessons learned from covid-19

How have non-financial risks evolved as a result of the pandemic?

In many cases risk exposure increased almost overnight as the implementation of digital technologies had to be accelerated.

Are the traditional tools and frameworks that are used to manage those risks fit for purpose in a rapidly changing environment?

Balancing the digital promise with risk

For financial institutions, digital transformation is essential to future-proofing the business and improving customer experience, employee capabilities, operational efficiency, and business economics. This has become even more relevant in light of the covid-19 crisis and the ability of FIs to respond.

To understand the challenges and key enablers for digital transformation, the new IIF-Deloitte series Realizing the Digital Promise draws from interviews with 80+ executives and leaders from across banks, insurers, regulators and governments around the world, exploring how financial institutions are embracing digital innovation to tackle shifting market dynamics, disruptive forces, and changing customer expectations. The era of transformation also poses new questions for risk managers, including in how to balance or reconcile the innovation imperative with risk appetite, and the emergence of new risks, such as with the protections and ethical use of customer data.

This session will combine the highlights from the IIF-Deloitte study with a first-hand CRO perspective, as well as discuss the emerging paradigm shift in financial services.
