On 18 October, the Italian Insurance Association (ANIA) — in partnership with the Italian G20 Presidency and in collaboration with the Global Federation of Insurance Associations (GFIA) — will host the Insurance Summit. The event will examine the significant contribution that insurers can and are already making to facilitate the G20’s priorities on people, planet and prosperity. Keynote speeches and panels will discuss the role of insurers regarding sustainable investment, climate change and the development of integrated and resilient welfare systems.
Attendees will hear from a wide range of distinguished speakers including Mairead McGuinness, EC Commissioner for Financial Services, Financial Stability and Capital Markets Union; Mark Carney, ex-Governor of the Bank of England and now Vice Chairman and Head of Impact Investing at Brookfield Asset Management; and Don Forgeron, President of the Global Federation of Insurance Associations.
The event will include three panel discussions:
- Sustainable investment — This panel will examine how insurers are supporting the transition to sustainability through their long-term investments in sustainable assets. It will also cover what policymakers can do to help insurers to contribute further: specifically, the need to increase the volume of ESG data to aid investment decisions and to increase the availability of sustainable assets.
- Mitigating and adapting to climate change —This panel will discuss how insurers can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through their underwriting and investment activities, and insurers’ role in addressing protection gaps and supporting adaptation efforts.
- Towards an integrated welfare system: An optimal mix of public and private schemes for pensions, health and long-term care — The panel will look at how insurers, as key providers of long-term pensions and healthcare solutions, can contribute towards the development of sustainable welfare systems. This includes ways to minimise the retirement savings gap for all gender groups through the uptake of supplementary second and third pillar pension products and a healthy lifestyle.
