Albert Einstein reportedly said, “In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity.” With this in mind, our roundtable on mergers and acquisitions will bring together insurance experts to discuss the trends as well as explore how consolidation can strengthen the industry. With the COVID-19 pandemic set to become endemic, combining strengths and market share may be the most viable strategy for long-term survival.

Join us for two exclusive roundtable discussions as we examine why as well as explore the untapped opportunities and pitfalls in the Asia and Middle East M&A markets.
