Digital technologies' support for the property insurance industry discussed in Munich

26 May 2016 — Daniela GHETU
"Failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation is considered the most potentially impactful risk and the third most likely" states the WEF Global Risks Report 2016. "Environmental worries have been at the forefront in recent years reflecting a sense that climate change-related risks have moved from hypothetical to certain", also underlines the report.

Also, acute shocks as earthquakes, floods - to only include events caused by natural causes -, may significantly threaten the urban resilience, if risk mitigation and recovery financing solutions are not consistently and substantially taken into consideration.

Considering the above, the 2016 edition of IIF - Property Insurance in the Digital Era will bring under scrutiny two essential topics:
  • The re/insurance tools and solutions available at the service of risk mitigation and efficient recovery
  • The specific ways in which the new digital technologies can assist and improve efficiency in the property re/insurance field
A large array of top relevant speakers will contribute to the Forum's content:
