PWC Bermuda to host November Insurance Summit

30-05-2018

PwC Bermuda has announced it will host the annual PwC Insurance Summit, presented by the Financial Times on November 1, 2018 at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

After 12 years of the PwC S&P Bermuda Reinsurance conference, PwC will now host the Summit as a stand-alone annual industry forum. Its new partner, the Financial Times, is a leading global media brand.

The PwC Insurance Summit will bring together over 200 industry leaders, experts, and professionals to discuss trends and strategies to adapt and innovate in the fast evolving insurance and reinsurance market.

The conference agenda will focus on innovation and transformation in the insurance industry, including trends in insurtech, blockchain, robotics and AI; opportunities for growth; cyber risk, the evolving nature of risk; alternative capital; US tax reform and more. Panels will explore topics in a variety of formats including keynote presentations, interviews, discussions, and audience Q&A, making use of new technologies to enhance engagement.

“We are delighted to announce the PwC Insurance Summit,” said Arthur Wightman, PwC Bermuda leader. “This event will provide a global platform for the Bermuda insurance industry’s leading voices and most influential decision makers.

“According to PwC’s 2018 Global CEO Survey, two-thirds of insurance CEOs report increasing pressure on their organisations to deliver business results under shorter timelines. This at a time when the majority of insurance CEOs report that theirs is one of the most disrupted industries. The pressure for urgent and fundamental change is mounting within companies and across the industry. This is the backdrop to our PwC Insurance Summit.”

Wightman continued: “We are excited to partner with the Financial Times. Recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy in reporting, the FT’s support and involvement in our event speaks incredibly highly of Bermuda’s reputation as a globally leading, innovative reinsurance centre with an internationally respected regulatory regime.

“Working with the FT will ensure our firm’s significant annual investment in hosting a high impact Bermuda insurance forum delivers on our brand and business needs and offers attendees a dynamic and engaging format with a distinguished lineup of speakers.”

“FT Live are pleased to add the PwC Insurance Summit and partner with PwC, one of the top 50 global brands,” said Toby Saunders, head of commercial, banking & finance, FTLive. “FT Live oversees an extensive portfolio of industry-leading and thematically stimulating conferences and summits around the globe. FT Live has a reputation for delivering very senior audiences at world class thought-leadership events across the globe and this Summit will be no exception.”
