Morning Plenary Session

Securing the future of the General Insurance Market amidst widening expectation and protection gaps

The future of the General Insurance Market is under scrutiny as the gap between expectations and protection widens. Amidst difficult times, consumers are increasingly seeking comprehensive insurance policies, while insurers grapple with a multitude of complex and evolving risks and challenges.

In this session, we will seek to answer: How can insurers bridge the protection gap? How are the regulators approaching the expectation gap and what do they expect from insurers? What impact might these issues have on the industry? What are consumer expectations? How can insurers effectively communicate cover to consumers? 

Morning Break Out Sessions

Breakout A - Regulation - AI principles into practice

Breakout B - Saving lives with data 

Breakout C - Empowering customers to make good choices 

Breakout D - Insuretech/data 

Afternoon Plenary One

Mansion House reforms for pensions: where are we now?

This plenary session will: 

  • Explore the opportunities and barriers to pension funds investing in the UK.  
  • Analyse the progress of each of the strands of reform announced in the Chancellor’s Mansion House speech in July 
  • Debate whether the Chancellor’s golden rules be met.

Breakout F - Health and Protection - Shaping an effective market

Afternoon Plenary Two

Investing in healthy lives

Healthy life expectancy has increased over time, but not as much as life expectancy. This means that people are spending more years in poor health. People’s healthy life expectancy is driven by a range of socio-economic factors from deprivation to gender and ethnicity, alongside behavioural factors such as smoking, diet and exercise.

Breakout I - General Insurance - Challenge or opportunity? Insuring difficult risks

Breakout J - Insuretech
