"It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change"

Over the last 12 months the insurance industry, and consequently the MGA sub-sector, has seen the most change - or perceived change - since the MGAA was formed nearly 10 years ago in 2011.  But the big question remains, are we seeing the start of a market wide hardening or is it the tailwinds of pricing corrections in the under-performing classes? Either way, these changes have and will continue to impact our sector; and with it bring both threats and opportunities.

Overlay these changing attitudes, the Lloyd’s Decile 10 review and a couple of high profile start-ups with Brexit, insuretech, Inclusion & Diversity, broker consolidation and regulatory changes - to mention a few - you can see why the old adage ‘survival of the fittest’ has never been more appropriate.  This year’s conference will explore all of those topics and more!
