In an increasingly unpredictable geopolitical climate and amid indications of slowing global economic growth and intensifying market volatility, insurance companies and their investment managers face ever-greater pressure to protect and sustain long-term returns, diversify portfolios and manage emerging risks.
While major trends impacting the investment landscape will continue to influence strategy-- from rising interest rates and the changing outlook for yield across traditional and non-traditional asset classes, to the demand for integrating ESG factors into decision-making -- there are also concerns over future relations between the UK and the EU. What will be the implications for insurers? How will they be regulated, which operations will be affected, and how will they continue to serve their European clients?
Building on the success of the 2018 event, Managing Assets for Insurers, presented by Financial Times Live and MandateWire, will again gather leading investors from the insurance sector to discuss the most effective strategies to deliver growth -- at a time of growing economic, political and market uncertainty.
