The majority of presentations were pre-recorded and broadcast on the day, on our virtual platform, with live Q&A segments incorporated to each of the presentations. 

All the content from the day is available to watch on the platform afterwards to those who register here for the Convention.

There are 20 presentations, in 3 parallel sessions plus 2 plenary sessions, including:

  • Climate-related risk for Life Insurers
  • Pension Scheme Risk Management – A Trustee Perspective
  • Remote Working: The Ingredients for Success
  • Non-Life reserving in periods of heightened uncertainty
  • Fractals and Hedging

Our keynote speaker is the leading behavioural scientist Professor Pete Lunn, founder and head of the ESRI's Behavioural Research Unit.  Pete's research interests range from economic decision-making and how people negotiate trade-offs to environmental and major public health outcomes, with much in between.  He gives a talk on "Money, Measurement and the Mind: Using Behavioural Science to Improve Financial Decisions" - it was a fascinating session.
