Business, Risk Leaders to Meet in Lagos Oct 2O

Leading risk management and insurance players, including key regional insurance regulators, from across West Africa will be taking part in Commercial Risk Africa’s Risk Frontiers – West Africa: Driving the risk management agenda one-day seminar in Lagos on October 20th, 2016.

Economic growth in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) has been one of the defining trends in frontier markets. Economies that had been dormant for years have emerged to attract billions of pounds of foreign investment into their natural resources, infrastructure and consumer goods sectors.

Despite declining oil prices and an economic slowdown in China, the economy of SSA is still set to grow. It is also the fastest growing insurance region, behind emerging Asia, with premium growth of 4.5% to 5% expected in 2016 and 2017.

However, as the business environment changes at a rapid pace, it is essential for business to maintain a disciplined risk management approach. This unique one-day event provides an unparalleled opportunity for risk practitioners to interact with specialists from across the world.

Led by insurance regulator, Mohammed Kari from NAICOM, the event will focus on the challenges for businesses in maintaining compliance in a fast changing regulatory environment.

Delegates will also hear from the experts about how to manage the rapid depreciation of African currencies, both from a local and international perspective.

Other issues to be explored include:

  • Political risk & political violence;
  • Global legacy and sustainability issues;
  • Broad financial risk;
  • Operational risks; and
  • Risks around human capital and the skills gap.

The unique event will bring together risk practitioners from across the region to meet with both local and international experts, to share best practices and exchange their knowledge.
