15th CRO Assembly: Breaking the chain - Disruptions to global production and supply chains

21 - 22 May 2019

Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

The 15th CRO Assembly is an exclusive event, uniquely designed to bring together Chief Risk Officers from across the globe to Zurich.

The topic for the upcoming Assembly on 21-22 May 2019 will be the management of risks inherent in the increasing globalization of production lines and supply chains. We will feature sessions with leading global speakers on macro trends influencing global supply chains, including the political risk of trade war and the global repercussions of China's Belt and Road project. Senior representatives of major multinationals will discuss how they manage their supply side risk and deploy insurance. We will further analyse emerging risks and opportunities within supply chains, such as the use of block chain technology, environmental liabilities and Arctic shipping.

When supply chains break, we all suffer. The better we manage that risk, the better for all of us.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with other senior risk leaders from around the globe, exchange ideas with senior Swiss Re Executives and deepen  your understanding of the likely business implications of supply chain disruptions for the insurance industry.
