“According to PwC’s 2018 Global CEO Survey, two-thirds of insurance CEOs report increasing pressure on their organisations to deliver business results under shorter timelines. This at a time when the majority of insurance CEOs report that theirs is one of the most disrupted industries. The pressure for urgent and fundamental change is mounting within companies and across the industry. This is the backdrop to our PwC Insurance Summit.”

Mr Wightman continued, “We are excited to partner with the Financial Times. Recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy in reporting, the FT’s support and involvement in our event speaks incredibly highly of Bermuda’s reputation as a globally leading, innovative reinsurance centre with an internationally respected regulatory regime.

“Working with the FT will ensure our firm’s significant annual investment in hosting a high-impact Bermuda insurance forum delivers on our brand and business needs and offers attendees a dynamic and engaging format with a distinguished lineup of speakers.”

“The agenda will focus on innovation and transformation in the insurance industry, including trends in insurtech, blockchain, robotics and AI; opportunities for growth; cyber risk, the evolving nature of risk; alternative capital; US tax reform and more.
