Insurers: investing in an evolving world

02 February 2017 14:00 (registration 13:45) - 16:00 followed by networking drinks

ABI, 8th floor, One America Square, London EC3N 2LB

The ABI is pleased to announce we are hosting, in partnership with EY, a seminar exploring how insurers’ investment behaviour is responding to the financial crisis, low interest rates, and the regulatory environment.

We are delighted to have Joseph Noss, Senior Manager, Capital Markets Division at the Bank of England as the keynote address, who will share the Bank’s latest thinking in this area.

Joseph’s address will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A featuring four influential panellists, offering their perspectives on insurers’ investment response, and the consequences for the capital markets.  The discussion will explore topics including whether insurers contribute to the procyclicality of capital markets, an issue recently discussed in the Bank's November 2016 Financial Stability Report, and the desirability of macroprudential tools for insurance.

Speakers include:

-    Joseph Noss, Senior Manager, Capital Markets Division, Bank of England

-    Raj Singh, Group Chief Risk Officer, Standard Life

-    Gareth Sutcliffe, Director, EY

-    Professor Avinash Persaud, Chairman, Intelligence Capital Limited, and Emeritus Professor, Gresham College

This is a free event to all ABI members and ABI Associate members.
