Overview

Seismic shifts have taken hold of the insurance industry. Tackling climate change, whilst maintaining business performance is critically important for today’s insurer- from avoiding significant balance sheet risks to safeguarding the interests of society both for current and future generations. And whilst history books will remember 2020 as a year of unending drama, with courage, imagination and tenacity, insurance and asset management firms can partner together to achieve positive change. 

This series qualifies for up to 8 hours of CPD.
