IIGI Theme Revealed – “Navigating Risk In Volatile Times”

The IIG President each year leads a delegation of re/insurance professionals on an international educational and networking emersion, and this year all roads (and flights) lead to Paris, France. This consists of a variety of  industry professionals, most of which are in the middle to senior/executive management roles of our industry.


The travel dates have been confirmed as 17-26 September 2023 under the theme  “Navigating Risk In Volatile Times”.


Apart from earning more than enough CPD points for the next cycle, some of the expected outcomes of the experience this year will be that :


  • There is an overarching theme to the trip which has guided the selected companies we are visiting.
  • We are touching on all dominant segments of our markets, i.e. reinsurer, broker, insurer and clients.
  • Topics to be covered include underwriting, growing an insurance business in Africa, underwriting and managing natural catastrophe risk, risk management, economic impact on insurance/reinsurance.


All these are relevant topics for the current market conditions. The market visits and interactions have been broken down in different segments of our industry and the discussions look to provide solutions for insurance risk in the different segments of our business.  Please look out for your social media posts on the meetings that are being confirmed by our hosting companies.


Because of the World Cup Visas have to be applied for earlier than usual and we therefore target to have all delegates confirmed by mid-June to make the process smoother for everyone joining.
