Florida regulator joins PwC summit line-up
David Altmaier, commissioner of the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, has been added to the line-up of speakers and keynotes for the annual PwC Insurance Summit, presented by the Financial Times.
Mr Altmaier will be part of a panel with John Huff, president and chief executive officer of the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, at the November 7 event at Hamilton Princess and Beach Club.
Keynote speakers who have been added to the conference line-up include Hiscox chairman Robert Childs, Legal&General Re CEO Thomas Olunloyo, and industry innovators Karen White, former Silicon Valley executive and current CEO of RMS, and Paul Brand, deputy CEO of start-up, Convex Insurance.
Panel discussions on ILS and the island’s growing life reinsurance sector will feature Michael Millette, founder and managing partner, Hudson Structured Capital Management, and Chip Gillis, chief executive of Athene Life Re, organisers said.
Also joining the conference line-up are top executives from the world’s largest reinsurer, Munich Re. Marc-André Giguère, president and CEO at Munich Re, US (Life and Health) and Mary Forrest, president and CEO at Munich Re, North America (Life and Health), will participate.
Previously announced participants include Brian Duperreault, president and CEO of AIG, who will deliver the opening keynote, as well as Sompo International CEO Nigel Frudd, and RFIB group executive chairman Dennis Mahoney.
Bermuda market veteran Mr Mahoney, the former CEO of Aon UK, said: “I am looking forward to being part of a great line-up of speakers at PwC’s annual summit. The risk landscape is fast evolving and my keynote will touch on the topic of inclusion in the industry, and how in an increasingly divisive world, the historic broker-carrier relationship is becoming even more symbiotic.”
Curtis Dickinson, the finance minister, will be interviewed live by Financial Times insurance correspondent Oliver Ralph, who will be on-island along with Robert Armstrong, the FT’s US finance editor.
Some 300 attendees are expected this year, organisers said, including C-suite executives and senior professionals from more than 75 global companies and organisations, including 50 re/insurers, offering attendees networking opportunities.
Arthur Wightman, PwC Bermuda leader, said: “We are building on the success of our event last year with a stellar line-up of inspiring and thought-provoking speakers and keynotes and a fast-paced agenda that will address the most pressing issues in the market today, including technology, cyber-risk, regulation, climate change and sustainability.”
