14th CRO Assembly: Health Focus – The curse of plenty – Increasing longevity, rising chronic disease and our health prognosis

30 - 31 May 2018

Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

Will we still be living at the age of 100? If so, are we prepared at the individual and societal level to cope with what this means? At the 14th CRO Assembly, which will be held 30 - 31 May 2018 at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue in Rüschlikon, near Zurich, you will have the opportunity to interact with experts who are already thinking about the economic and societal challenges that will need to be addressed in ageing populations.

At the conference, we will present our latest 2018 SONAR Report on new emerging risks. We will highlight trends in pandemics and man-made epidemics, such as the opioid or obesity epidemics, and also focus on antibiotic resistance which can have widespread implications. We will also explore trend spotting as well as developments in genome editing, which could have a significant impact on insurers in the future.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with other senior risk leaders from around the globe to discuss health and demographics, exchange ideas and deepen your understanding of the business implications for the insurance industry.
