IHS is presenting the Country Risk Lloyd's Insurance Briefing in London, United Kingdom on February 6, 2017.

Key Global Risks for 2017: IHS invites you to attend an insurance industry briefing in the Old Library at Lloyd's of London on February 6, 2017.

Please join us on February 6 at Lloyd’s of London for a half-day briefing on a selection of key global risks for 2017 and the potential impacts for insurance underwriting, aggregation control and exposure management.

The election of Donald Trump as President of the United States will influence the global risk environment in 2017, including political, political violence, economic and cyber risks. Touching on some of the key risk events globally, we will discuss the most-likely scenarios and potential impacts on critical topics.

Economic risk

The United Kingdom has defied expectations of a post-Brexit slowdown. Is this a delayed reaction to the EU referendum? What do the latest PMI surveys tell us about the economy and business confidence?

Political risk

A look ahead at the Trump administration: What do we see on the domestic and global political risk horizon?

  • US domestic tax, regulatory and legislative issues
  • Trade: focus on Mexico and China
  • Russia sanctions and external assertiveness, as well as Iran sanctions and internal/regional stability

Political violence risk

How will a Trump presidency impact certain political violence drivers and what are other key risks to follow in 2017?

  • US domestic terrorism and unrest
  • Asia war risks (North Korea, Japan and South China Sea)
  • Islamic State
  • Colombia peace process
  • Outlook for Western Europe mass shootings

Cyber risk

Insurers are seeking to establish a process for evaluating cyber risks in light of the increasing demand for this type of cover. IHS is investigating how to evaluate cyber risk through a terrorism lens, both in terms of vulnerability by asset class and geographic hotspots.

Briefing sessions:

The event will be structured as four separate sessions focusing on the economic risk, political risk, political violence risk and cyber risk utilizing IHS capabilities and expertise from our Markit Economics indices, as well as the Country Risk team.
