3rd Annual Insurance Investment Summit: Finding New Opportunities in an Age of Disruption

THURSDAY, MAY 2, 2019 AT 10:00 AM (EDT)

Insurance industry dynamics are constantly in flux. From emerging technologies to shifting geopolitics to an ever-evolving regulatory landscape, how can companies turn these perceived disruptors into opportunities for their businesses?

Join S&P DJI and leading industry practitioners to hear their perspectives on how to capitalize on these market shifts.

Keynote speaker Stanley Fischer, former Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve and Senior Advisor at BlackRock, will provide a macroeconomic outlook highlighting the challenges and potential opportunities facing the U.S. economy today.

Topics will also include:

  • Impact on investing: what can happen to the 'BBB' market when the credit cycle turns?
  • Debunking the myth that fixed income ETFs are a systemic threat to the bond market
  • How climate change is impacting investments and ways to mitigate portfolio risk
  • The implications of geopolitical risk for insurance investors
  • Exploring the Fourth Industrial Revolution and how artificial intelligence is shaping the future of investment decision making
