The European Forum for Risk and Insurance professionnals
Karen Jenner, Portfolio Director IPT – Business Development at TMF Group
Why is participating at a European risk management event important to you?
As a service provider to insurers, brokers and the captive market, keeping abreast of insurance trends is key for our own development and to ensure we continue to meet client needs. The opportunity to share concepts and ideas with professional insurance colleagues from across Europe is key to understanding the market. Sessions educating us on new products and approaches within the industry are key, as well as the opportunity to network with colleagues and peers from across Europe within one event. Having key industry professionals in the same venue for a period of time is invaluable.
What does “Aim for the Future” mean to you?
Ensuring that the industry is ready to embrace changes, and remaining knowledgeable and adaptable to changing market needs to ensure the industry evolves. Digitization is a current hot topic, but with the traditional nature and history of the insurance industry, we need to ensure that developments are evolutionary and not rushed.
You will be presenting « Compliance Challenges for Multinationals – Insurance Premium Taxation », what would you like the audience to remember after your session?
The aim of the session is to simplify a complex topic. We hope to arm Risk Managers and all those involved in global insurance programmes with enough knowledge to appreciate which areas of IPT require more focus and consideration in any multinational programme, and to know when to challenge information, or involve specialists.
