mariusz_wichtowski1"The combined ratio in MTPL is one of the biggest problems in many countries, and in many cases is close or even higher than 100%. However, there are also examples showing that it is possible to have claims ratios of 90% or even better than that and this is the direction we should all go," Mariusz W. WICHTOWSKI, President of CoB, stated in a interview for XPRIMM following the 2012 edition of IIF-Motor Insurance Conference. Two years later, the situation is not much different, although certain steps towards a better profitability in motor insurance have been taken.

Mariusz WICHTOWSKI will give a Keynote speech on the current status and main issues on the Green Card insurers' agenda at the 2014 edition of the IIF 2014 ?€“ "Motor Insurance ?€“ the road towards profitability", which will take place in Istanbul, on April 6th-7th, 2014.

In this context, transferring the best practices towards the emerging markets, with the aim of improving the markets?€™ sustainability, remains a top priority. Thus, the forthcoming edition of the event will once again provide the perfect opportunity to analyze and identify the best options for increasing profitability in motor insurance, including the claims control.
