The International Center for Insurance Regulation (ICIR), the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the Research Center SAFE - Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe and the World Bank Group are organizing the Global Insurance Supervision (GIS) Conference, which will take place on 4-5 September 2019 in 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 GIS conference will explore key topics of sustainability from a European and international insurance supervision perspective focusing on:

Sustainable Business Models for Insurers

Fair Competition in a Disruptive Environment


Closing the Protection Gap

The Leading Role of Insurance in the Area of Natural Catastrophes and Demographic Change


Micro Meets Macro

A Holistic Framework for Systemic Risk in the Insurance Sector


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 2019 conference will build on the success of previous years and foster shaping a convergent global insurance regulatory framework.

With kind regards,
