Change the Game – EIF 2017

Over 240 senior executives from the international insurance industry gathered in Croke Park last week at the European Insurance Forum (EIF 2017), a premier European conference in the re/insurance calendar.

As a leading provider of spatial solutions to the insurance sector in Ireland, Gamma was one of the proud sponsors of EIF 2017, showcasing Perilfinder™, its risk assessment and accumulations reporting tool for insurance professionals.

This year’s theme, “Change the Game”, reflected the significant trends which will shape the insurance industry over the next few years. The key topics included the impact of Brexit and the Trump presidency on the insurance sector and the shifts in the geopolitical landscape, the low interest rate environment, the changing tax landscape, technology trends that are revolutionising the traditional landscape of the industry, and the regulatory framework of EU insurance companies, Solvency II.

Keynote speaker Paul Mason said, “Insurance is a risk assessment business and increasingly we are seeing a change internationally from economic risk to political risk. In Europe alone, the stakes in each election are getting higher both for their domestic impacts and what they mean for the European project. Having an understanding of these dynamics is critical for any business.”
