ERM in Insurance Special Interest Group

Purpose of the group

This group focuses on the particular challenges of risk professionals involved in risk and capital management within Insurance, and incorporates the previous Internal Model Industry Forum to reinforce that internal models are now part of the business-as-usual risk and capital management activities of many insurers.


Aims and Objectives

Our focus is to ensure that we are covering topics that have a particular relevance for practitioners and other stakeholders in Enterprise Risk Management in the insurance industry.  

  • Cover a mix of both technical and ‘soft’ topics
  • Run events to disseminate views on an existing topic and enable shared learning 
  • Aim to develop thought leadership where there is a particular gap or need in the market
  • Frequently engage with the membership to ensure they shape the agenda and to gather feedback 
  • Engage with other SIGs where there are subjects of common interests with insurance, in order to ensure that we approach topics in a way that is collaborative, efficient and effective.

Forward agenda

In order to ensure that this group has clear focus on areas and issues of relevance to members, the co-chairs, Isaac Alfon and Justin Elks, encourage those who are interested to get in touch with them in respect of this group.

We are particularly interested in: 

  • Ideas for areas or topics you’d like to see the new group focus on
  • Expressions of interest to provide help, support and leadership on particular areas. 

We have also created an outline forward agenda as a list of topics we are looking to explore, which you can view in full here. We are keen to hear any feedback you may have.
