PLENARY – BREXIT AND THE NEW POLITICAL RISK

In the run up to Brexit day on 29 March 2019, as a no deal exit began to look more likely, many businesses pushed the panic button. They had failed to price in appropriately, or price in at all, the danger of a no-deal because they couldn’t believe the British government or the EU could allow such a disastrous outcome. Business tends to look at the government as a rational actor, but these are not rational times.

Businesses that fail to understand the broader social and economic forces at work in their country or community are increasingly exposed to interconnected political risk – of which Brexit serves as a perfect example. In this talk I will describe how we missed the development of these risks and argue that to be a successful risk manager requires a true ERM approach with a broader political perspective, both inside and outside the insurance industry.

PLENARY – PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES TO COUNTER UNCONSCIOUS BIAS INFLUENCING BUSINESS DECISIONS

Risk managers have a unique and privileged position in terms of being able to recognise and assist in countering unconscious bias. When assessing and discussing risks, we are given direct access to what happens in all areas of the business and have the opportunity to observe behaviours first hand. When we notice biases as part of our role, we can help to implement measures or nudges that encourage a change in behaviour and improve culture.
