Bermuda-based reinsurer RenaissanceRe is to host a major conference on storm recovery in New York.
Around 150 environmentalists, policymakers, scientists and insurance industry experts will converge on the New York Stock Exchange next month for the event.
The daylong forum, timed to coincide with the start of the hurricane season, will look at the effects of Superstorm Sandy that hit the city in 2012 and the city’s recovery from the devastating strike.
The conference will include panel discussions and keynote speeches from senior government officials and environmental experts.
Attendees will include Stephen Weinstein, group general counsel of RenaissanceRe and president of the RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation and Thomas Farley, president of the New York Stock Exchange Group at International Exchange Ltd.
Charles Shumer, the US senator for New York has also been invited to speak at the event, to be held on Thursday, June 2.
