Presenter:

Robert Smith, Founder, President and Chief Investment Officer | SAGE Advisory Services


One of the most significant and at times controversial trends in the investment management industry today relates to sustainable investing and the application of ESG factor analysis (Environmental, Social, Governance). At center stage is the US insurance industry, from both investment and regulatory standpoints. On both fronts, levels of even partial integration are well behind our international peers, whether it be reinsurers in Europe, the globally minded International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) or those simply embracing the United Nation’s more aspirational Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI). With trends so irreversible and the US so lagging, it begs the question of how did we get here, where and how fast are we going, and what benefits insurance companies would realize with even partial adoption of the basic principles?

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Recognize the evolution and basic principles of sustainable investing, ESG factor analysis, and the principles for sustainable insurance.

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Identify the risk-enhancing capabilities for investment portfolios, the coming rating and regulatory reporting requirements, and the
contribution to more robust ERM practices.

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Recognize the competitive advantages of bolstered reputation and branding coupled with the simple projection as a better corporate citizen.

Presenter:

Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, CEO | Disaster Avoidance Experts


In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as an insurance professional will dramatically improve your ability to recognize covert risks and help other insurance professionals do so as well, in the post-COVID recovery and beyond. Cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral economics show that we all tend to miss risks in a time of change due to unconscious dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. Mental blindspots such as the ostrich effect and confirmation bias cause us to deny uncomfortable facts about risks, even serious and obvious ones, due to how our brains are wired. Even when we recognize such risks, our colleagues and business partners often miss them. Our typical methods of trying to convince them through facts and arguments often fail, leading to unnecessary conflicts and often disastrously bad decisions. This presentation will offer you case studies, best practices, and groundbreaking research to provide you with the most critical skills and take-aways that you need to help yourself recognize and avoid such risks and successfully convince your collaborators to do so.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Recognize where you or your team members might suffer from subtle mental blindspots (called cognitive biases) that result in missing hidden risks

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Identify the recently-discovered strategies that will enable you and your team members to uncover potential hidden risks

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Define best practices to convince others effectively to recognize and avoid hidden risks

Many organizations were challenged during 2020 to quickly move to a remote environment with minimal disruptions. This quick transition, in combination with an increase in cybercrime made cybersecurity awareness more important than ever. Many organizations had thought that their remote transitions were successful, however, IT personnel who should have been focusing on security had to reprioritize to assist in supporting infrastructure, connectivity, while minimizing disruptions. With the increase in cybersecurity threats, organizations, especially insurance companies, need to stay ahead of the current technology trends that they might face in 2021. This interactive session will provide insight into how management can contribute in strengthening cybersecurity controls in this new environment by ensuring they have the appropriate resources to manage and monitor their IT environments and ensure their incident response planning is in line with the increase in threats.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Recognize projections for top trends in cybersecurity for 2021

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Define ways management can strengthen cybersecurity controls in response to these new threats

Attendees will leave this event knowing how to…. Identify elements of incident response planning to ensure alignment with increase in cyber threats.
