“The Global Insurance Supervision Conference: An excellent opportunity to get first-hand information about the developments in the European and international insurance sector and a unique platform to exchange ideas on strategic regulatory and supervisory issues.”

The International Center for Insurance Regulation (ICIR), the Research Center SAFE - Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) and the World Bank Group are organizing the Global Insurance Supervision (GIS) Conference, which will take place on 6-7 September 2017 in in the “regulatory capital” Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Top representatives from major (re)insurance groups, regulatory and supervisory authorities as well as renowned academics from around the globe will debate current and future key topics of international insurance supervision, focusing on global trends in risk-based supervision and the challenges linked to the implementation of global standards.

This year’s conference will explore developments that shape the future of the global insurance and reinsurance sector and will focus on the topics:

  • the effects of climate change on the (re)insurance sector,
  • the latest developments in consumer protection,
  • the interconnection of micro- and macro-regulatory aspects to achieve financial stability.

The conference will attract attendees from around the world for one and a half days of presentations, panel debates, break-out sessions and networking opportunities.

We are confident that the 2017 conference will build on the success of previous years and foster shaping a  convergent global insurance regulatory framework.


With kind regards,
