    • Laurence Smith, Editor, A World Of Risk, Chartered Insurance Institute

In this IIL London Market lecture Laurence Smith looked at the evolution of the global insurance market and provided an insight into key innovations enhancing public trust in the profession worldwide.

Since the first oceangoing traders negotiated with underwriters in Edward Lloyd's famous coffee house, insurance has been infused with an international mindset. Today, it's one of the few genuinely global professions. Following the launch of the CII's A World Of Risk report - the first publication that showcases activity in every continent to create a trusted profession - Laurence will be celebrating the work of firms, individuals, regulators, educational bodies and affiliated institutes to build public trust in insurance and financial planning.

By the end of this lecture members would have gained an insight into the:

  • Activities of key market participants across continents to build public trust in insurance
  • Key metrics associated with the international insurance profession
  • Innovations being piloted by cross-border players, regulators, educational bodies and institutes to embed professionalism and standards
