The FERMA Seminar is an exclusive event organised by European risk managers for European risk managers. It is limited to risk and insurance managers only. The organisers aim to promote interchange of experience among professionals.
Theme: CORPORATE RISK AND FINANCE – Financing the ever growing universe of risk.
What will be the focus this year?
The Covid-19 pandemic and its economic consequences are the clearest possible evidence of our ever-growing universe of risk. This year’s seminar will help prepare risk managers to support their organisations in this environment.
The Seminar will focus on two key questions:
• What are the financial options available to manage our new and existing exposures in the current environment?
• How do we best communicate these issues, especially with the CFO and other senior managers?
Since the insurance market was already hardening when COVID-19 hit, the seminar sessions will consider how new conditions will drive rates and capacity. They will also look at the interface between insurance and ERM and the potential for other risk transfer and financing options.
The pandemic is already highlighting supply chain exposures and the demand for contingent business interruption cover, and climate change-related risks will return to the front of investors’ minds. These are all topics for the exchange of expertise, experience and good practice at the Seminar.
With a programme designed for Chief Risk Officers and risk and insurance managers, the Seminar promises expert speakers plus peer-to-peer discussions with real life case studies.
