Attendees at this conference will consider the future of the general insurance sector in the UK, and key challenges ahead for supporting competition and innovation across the sector.
The seminar will present a timely opportunity to examine the industry’s regulatory framework, in light of preparation for an operational Solvency II framework in January 2016.
It is also timed to consider the impact of a wide-range of policy and regulatory developments impacting on the sector – including implementation of the recent Insurance Act, the Financial Conduct Authority’s forthcoming consultation on competition remedies for insurance add-ons and the Competition and Markets Authority’s Private Motor Insurance Market Investigation.
Sessions will bring out latest thinking on contract law, tackling fraudulent claims as well as consumer protection, developing skills and attracting talent to the sector. The conference will bring together key policymakers and financial regulators with industry stakeholders – including general insurance providers, business groups, consumer bodies, analysts and commentators.
Chris Moulder, Director, General Insurance, Prudential Regulation Authority and Mary Starks, Director of Competition, Financial Conduct Authority have kindly agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.
