ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) considerations are the hot topic in the P&C insurance industry at the moment, with potentially game-changing effects at stake for re/insurers, brokers, insureds and ratings agencies alike. In this exclusive webinar in partnership with Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA), Insider Engage brings together these key stakeholders to analyze and discuss exactly what these considerations mean for each other’s business – including both the risks and opportunities.
Topics for discussion:

➤ The broker perspective: what are customers demanding when it comes to environmental, social and corporate governance considerations, when securing coverage?
➤ How much weight do ESG factors carry when high premiums are at stake?
