ICAR 2018 registrations opened; top professionals in the fields of re/insurance, claims adjusting, risks modelling on the speakers list

"Various macro trends keep manifesting themselves: the digital age, longevity, ecological breakdown and increased protectionism are some of the key topics. While these changes can threat an established business model, macro trends can also be used to widen a commercial playground and explore different fields of profit," says Angelika WERNER, Expert Atmospheric Perils, Property Underwriting EMEA, Swiss Re.

Angelika will speak at the 15th edition of ICAR - The International Catastrophic Risks Forum, shedding the light on "how the insurance sector transforms and copes with the changing environment in regard to protection of homeowners."

The event organized in Bucharest, on 9 October, will focus on the recent trends in the property insurance field. Following 2017, a year of record losses caused by natural catastrophes, a team of top professionals in the fields of re/insurance, claims adjusting, risks modelling will share their views on the lessons learn from the 2017 experience, the impact of the climate change and the solutions to narrow the protection gap in housing insurance.
