As part of ongoing efforts to drive engagement and collaboration within the industry, XL Catlin has launched a content-driven, thought-leadership event series for clients and brokers around the globe.
The global event series, called Fast Fast Forward LIVE, was launched in Zurich, Switzerland, and focussed on the role of insurtech in the development of the commercial insurance industry, with Sarah Street, EVP for strategy and innovation initiatives and director of XL innovate, speaking on the insurtech phenomenon.
The event series launch also included a workshop on a new approach for liability cover and transferring operational risks in a shared economy, as well as a panel debate on the role start-ups and insurtech play in the development of the commercial insurance industry.
Elliott Bundy, chief communications and marketing officer at XL Catlin, said Fast Fast Forward LIVE builds on the success of Fast Fast Forward, a thought-leadership platform that features articles and interviews on current topics, allowing its people “to connect, share knowledge, and collaborate with a wide and varied audience of peers and industry experts.”
“Fast Fast Forward LIVE now allows us to build on this success by hosting tailored events in markets around the world with both internal and external experts from the industry and beyond exploring emerging risks, trends and the risk environment,” Bundy said.
Fast Fast Forward LIVE events are currently being planned in Europe, Australia, Latin America, and in key cities across the US. The next event in the series is scheduled to take place in Boston in May.
