About the event

The range of risks covered in a global programme is expanding all the time, as new and emerging risks appear. At the same time, traditional covers face considerable challenges, particularly with the current hard market. Capacity issues, increasing rates and tighter terms and conditions mean that buyers need to look to be more creative with retentions, greater use of captives and considering ART solutions. 

Some lines are particularly stressed such as D&O and cyber, while others such as business interruption have seen restrictions. Global programmes are about ensuring a level of uniformity of coverage, avoiding gaps and getting the best terms and conditions. 

This year’s conference will be hosted over three days and will look at the challenges in the insurance market, examine possible solutions and highlight the benefits of programmes in providing global coverage for a multinational. 

This event is free to attend.

Presentation and panel discussion: Resolving central v local conflict

There are a number of areas of conflict that need to be resolved before a programme can be successfully implemented, as a result of the different requirements of the head office and the local operations. There are however solutions and compromises to many of the areas of conflict. Communication is vital, ensuring that the head office understands the requirements of local operations, and vice versa.

Panel discussion: Documentation and contract certainty

One area that needs particular attention in a multinational programme is documentation, ensuring that it is not only correct, but is available both centrally and crucially, locally. The local subsidiary may need to have evidence of cover to comply with local regulations. Hence, the importance of contract certainty for global programmes, an issue the insurance industry has been grappling with for some time.
