The insurance industry is in the business of risk; acting as risk managers, risk carriers and investors. Accordingly, the insurance industry is significantly exposed to risks posed by the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, as well as the global transition towards a low-carbon economy. Adding the recent unprecedented pandemic for additional complexity and uncertainty, it is more important than ever before for managers of insurance company assets to factor relevant ESG risks into their investment portfolios.

The second in a series of webinars explores responsible investing and the US insurance industry. In this session, you will hear directly from investment officers of two major Insurance firms on the unique challenges they face, potential increased regulatory scrutiny and how they plan to continue managing resilient and sustainable insurance investment portfolios.
