Pinsent Masons' Insurance Sector Partners deliver their 6th live discussion call. Chaired by Hammad Akhtar, the call will explore the following topics:

Impact of Covid 19 on the insurance sector: Snapshot of Ireland and the United Arab Emirates:

Our partners Tom Bicknell and Naoise Harnett will discuss how the pandemic has affected the following areas of the insurance sector:

  • Regulatory response to COVID-19;
  • Insurer / reinsurer response to COVID-19;
  • Transaction flow/consolidation/inward investment;
  • Impact on outsourcing arrangements;
  • Digitisation / technology;
  • Outlook / the future   

Financial crime risks facing the insurance sector:

Covid-19 has created a perfect storm for financial crime, with firms’ compliance frameworks coming under increasing strain from commercial pressures, remote working challenges, and a shifting regulatory landscape; while the crisis fuels the threat from organised and opportunistic crime. Tom Stocker and David Hamilton from our White Collar Crime Investigations & Compliance team will consider the risks the insurance sector faces, and provide some practical guidance on how firms can navigate these uncharted waters.


There will be an opportunity to ask questions online.  We will do our best to address as many questions as we can.
