Webinar 1: A Conversation with Mick Moloney

In this interview with Paul Carroll, editor-in-chief at Insurance Thought Leadership, Mick Moloney of Oliver Wyman explores:

  • How, in these increasingly unpredictable times, insurers can focus on reducing risk while still managing for growth.
  • How the industry is restructuring -- in particular, as brokers and many private-equity firms thrive while life insurers struggle -- and why many are looking at "asset-light" models like those popular in Silicon Valley. 
  • How the nature of work is changing as employees return to offices -- sort of.

Webinar 4: A Conversation with Thierry Léger

In this interview Thierry Léger, group chief underwriting officers at Swiss Re, explains:

  • that effects from climate change now account for half of reinsurers' net cat losses
  • that the data for half the exposures just isn't good enough at the moment.
  • that demand is surging for cat coverage just as capacity is leaving the market, creating a "monumental" gap of perhaps $40 billion or $50 billion between the demand and the offer.

  • how insurers are leaning in on climate change to increase coverage and mitigate its effects.
  • how companies are using embedded insurance to extend their reach and simplify the purchasing process for customer.
