Chair: David Coupe, EC3\Legal
Panel discussion: MGAs, the Regulatory Horizon
Panel: Sara Ager - EC3\Legal, Mark Davies - Grant Thornton UK LLP, Charles Manchester - Manchester Underwriting Management Limited, Finlay Smith - RSA Insurance PLC
MGAs are facing increased attention from the regulator. The customer journey, conduct risk and the MGA’s ability to control its own business risk are very quickly becoming distinguishing features and a business differentiator in the already crowded SME space. This panel of industry specialists will discuss how the management of delegated authorities, conduct risk and conflicts of interests remain hot topics for the MGA business and how if managed properly can be the means by which to attract and retain good capacity.
The session will offer the audience an opportunity to hear from and interact with leading market participants and service providers who will give their view on what regulatory change lies on the horizon for the year ahead and consider how best the MGA can prepare to meet these obligations whilst remaining profitable and a viable alternative for its insurer partners.
