RiskMinds Insurance has had a makeover! For 2016 we will address the full spectrum of challenges facing CROs, Chief Actuaries and CTOs in European insurance and re-insurance companies. We have created a festival of events giving dedicated content to each of the above job titles, as well as bringing some of the leading thinkers and practitioners from insurance and other industries to share their experiences and ideas.


Is now finally the time CROs can get back to the business of risk? Join prominent minds and share strategies on the biggest challenges and hottest issues of the day. What can you do to embed an integrated risk framework? Drive strategy? Achieve growth? And meet regulatory requirements?

Tackle a multitude of challenges including product innovation, pricing in the volatile market, model sensitivity and robustness, improving ALM, capital modelling, optimising new types of data and utilising financial instruments. Make the most of fresh perspectives in technical presentations, case study experiences and insights from other industries.
