This is a multi-disciplinary field that has evolved over time. There is a genuine benefit to society as we strive to eventually get this right – and insurance certainly has a role to play. Let’s unpick some of the many topics on where this goes. In this session we aim to construct a better working hypothesis to help our clients understand their own risk as well as help the market unlock access to more underwriting capacity.
