by,, 2012-11-20
For five days starting November 19 Frankfurt am Main is hosting the 2012 edition of the EURO FINANCE WEEK, a well known annual event organized by MALEKI Group, displaying a large array of professional gatherings dedicated to the European financial world. The air of the city is rather changed as the Season Holidays atmosphere doesn't reach so far it used to do in the last years before the financial crisis. According to XPRIMM representatives joining the event, this wind of change can be felt also for EURO FINANCE WEEK. Thus, the event calendar has less conferences and seminars than last years' editions, having on the other hand a more integrated array of topics, doubled by more exclusive networking events.

by lela.sakovic
Insurers in Serbia announce to request a review of constitutionality of the decision according to which they are obliged to allocate 5 percent of the gross premium of automobile liability insurance for the Republic Fund for Health Insurance. This obligation was introduced early this year when the new Article of the Law on Compulsory Traffic Insurance came into force. The Croatian insurers have recently won the case against such a decision, after the Constitutional Court ruled it was unconstitutional. This prompted the Serbian insurers to take a similar step as well: Association of Serbian Insurers announced it would submit a request to the Constitutional Court for review of that decision.
