Whilst the insurance industry is still trying to recover from natural catastrophes such as the Sydney hail storm and the Townsville floods, simultaneously, insurers and reinsurers are also absorbing the fallout from the Royal Commission, and the costs surrounding new mandatory regulations. How will this situation evolve?

Join us at ANZIIF’s breakfast debate of the year where general reinsurers and insurers will debate whether the industry can afford the cost of new regulation. Will these costs be passed onto the policyholder? What better business models could be applied?

Be a part of the conversation as our speakers debate for or against the statement: “The industry can’t afford the cost of new regulation.”
