Upcoming Sessional Event: 18 November 2019 at 5pm, Staple Inn Hall (Holborn, London)
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world. Scientific research points out that it is predominately driven by human activity. It will be a major source of risk and uncertainty for insurers over the coming years. Actuaries and other insurance practitioners will need to assess the possible impacts of and appropriate responses to climate change, to help manage those risks and meet the demands of regulators and investors. Consequently, it has become an increasing area of focus for regulators, investors and customers.
This sessional will provide actuaries and insurance practitioners with an overview of how life and general insurance could be affected by climate change and highlight and discuss practical steps identified in the working party papers.
