I.I.I. Market Report: Managing Geopolitical Risk

On-demand Webinar
With the rising tide of nationalism and regional tensions around the world arguably more severe than since the Cold War, geopolitical risks seem to be only increasing. For insurers and insureds, the impacts of geopolitical risks can have a significant impact on the bottom line; whether through business disruption, financial loss, or even – and most tragically – human peril. Insurance is at the center of how businesses and people prepare and mitigate the risk.

In this webinar, leading experts from the insurance industry and the world of public affairs discuss the current geopolitical climate, subsequent risks for organizations and risk transfer solutions.
