Brits: “Covid-19 is the first of many challenges we are going to be faced with. Preparing for all eventualities, learning from colleagues all over the world and sharing information and other data are now more important than ever in aiding effective decision making.

More about RSKReview Podcast

RSKReview Podcast was started on the premise that initiative-takers think that risks should be accessible, practical, and even fun. The objective of the South African RSKReview is to inform listeners and share various views with them, and, in so doing, strengthen the “risk sector” as a whole. A podcast of a topically relevant interview with a leading risk expert or market leader is made available on RSKReview every week.

Narim-congres

The application of technology is also the theme at this year's virtual Narim congress, which will be held on September 18. Data technology is on the rise, also in the world of insurance. Insurers involve data analyzes in estimating the risks, insurability and in determining and implementing the underwriting policy. Data offers possibilities, but also has limitations for the time being. Ron de Bruijn, managing partner of Riskonet, therefore questions an overly data-driven risk approach.
