Singapore Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat will be the official keynote speaker and guest of honour at the 15th Singapore International Reinsurance Conference (SIRC).
The conference, which will be held from October 29 to November 01, 2018 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, will also feature AIG president and CEO Brian Duperreault as industry keynote speaker.
Heng is a core member of Singapore’s fourth-generation (‘4G’) leadership, and chairs the tripartite Future Economy Council. He will share his expertise at the SIRC, which has a theme of ‘Reinsurance Reloaded’.
Other confirmed speakers at the event are Munich Re global head of innovation Tom van den Bruelle, DBS Bank head of innovation and ecosystems Bidyut Dumra and ACR Capital Holdings group chief executive Bobby Heerasing.
The three-day conference includes presentations and panel discussions exploring how the reinsurance industry can adapt and remain relevant in the face of huge changes in geopolitics, technology, cyber threats, and external disruption.
Organised by the Singapore Reinsurers’ Association (SRA) and co-organised by the Reinsurance Brokers’ Association of Singapore (RBAS), last year’s SIRC drew almost 3,000 delegates from over 50 countries, reinforcing Singapore’s role as the reinsurance hub of Asia.
