The Australian and New Zealand Institute for Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) has announced the return of two significant reinsurance events for 2024: the Reinsurance International Study Course (RISC) and the Reinsurance Rendezvous Conference.

“ANZIIF’s Reinsurance Events are where expertise meets innovation. These events offer industry professionals the chance to expand their knowledge, build their networks, and gain valuable insights into the emerging concerns within the reinsurance sector,” said ANZIIF CEO Katrina Shanks.

The RISC program includes a practical syndicate group work, expert presentations, and team-building activities. Participants will design and test reinsurance programs in real-life scenarios. Completing the assessments offers credit toward ANZIIF membership and the option to claim a digital badge.

The course covers:

  • strategic aspects: the role of reinsurance in company strategy, its interaction with risk appetite, and underwriting practices;
  • technical knowledge: types of reinsurance, reading contract wording, and understanding catastrophe modelling;
  • financial analysis: the impact of reinsurance on financial positions; and
  • legal and regulatory requirements: compliance with regulatory standards and capital requirements for reinsurance.

ANZIIF said it appreciates the support of the RISC Organising Committee, including representatives from Aon, Guy Carpenter, Gallagher Re, icare, Swiss Re, QBE, Suncorp Group (Suncorp), Berkley Re, Unimutual, and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).
