Major trends on the European intermediation market

  • The scope of the new Insurance Mediation Directive
    • Should direct sales by insurance undertakings be included within the scope of IMD 2?
    • Should reinsurance intermediaries be subjected to IMD 2 provisions?
    • Should IMD 2 remain an "activity-based" directive of should it introduce additional definitions of the types of intermediaries included within its scope?
  • How should be reflected in the Directive the member states' insurance intermediaries activity in third countries? Should IMD 2 impose certain requirements to the intermediaries registered in non-EU countries which intend to offer services in a member state?
  • Role of intermediaries in life insurance distribution - is MLM The Solution?
  • The conflict of interests within the scope of IMD 2

Re/insurance intermediation - under pressure?

  • Between B2B and B2C - in search of untapped potential
  • The sales commission in non-life insurance - subject to renegotiation?
  • Claims adjustment:
    • A service with a higher added value during the crisis
    • barriers to developing a Claims Adjustment market in the Eastern Europe
  • Sharing the crisis' costs between large international insurance brokers and the local intermediaries
  • What insurers to recommend on a price-sensitive market? The intermediaries' liability for the quality of the mediated insurance services vs. the clients' need for low insurance premium
