The Insurance Risk & Capital Americas conference starts today in New York - offering the chance to share in-person best practice with chief risk officers, (CROs) chief investment officers and regulators from North America.

Held at etc.venues in New York, the one-day event features two tracks from InsuranceERM and our sister publication Insurance Asset Risk - covering all aspects of risk, regulation, investment, and environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) impacting insurers.

The conference will particularly examine inflationary risk, geopolitics and US monetary policy in a challenging environment. And a CRO panel will discuss the necessary tools for responding to emerging risks.

A keynote address will be given by Nick Silitch, CRO and senior vice president at Prudential Financial.

Attendees will also be able to contribute to a discussion on The Great Resignation, an economic trend of workers leaving their jobs in mass numbers since Covid-19, and consider how the industry can recruit top talent.  

Other discussion topics include:

  • Progress update and impacts of meeting a net zero commitment
  • Regulatory approaches to managing the financial risks from climate change
  • The ESG data challenge for both sides of insurers’ balance sheets
  • Can catastrophe modelling evolve fast enough to keep pace with climate change?
  • Managing increasing complexity in the investment portfolio
