BIBA conference thrives, but social media neglected

The annual BIBA conference is behind us for another year, but I’m not ready to forget all about #BIBA18 just yet. Reason being, I work in social media. Much of my trade happens at a pace and is very immediate - digital conversations happening in ‘real time’ as they do - but when people’s attention quickly moves on, that activity remains, and can be a rich source of insight.

A helping hand: Insurers could be key for brokers grappling with insurTech

11 May 2018

Despite the changes seen by our sector over the many years it has been in operation, one thing that has endured is the relationship between insurers and brokers. The partnership between the two has ebbed and flowed, with the advent of the direct-to-consumer model and the rise of aggregators fundamentally changing the nature of the partnership.

The new kid on the block, and something that will be discussed in detail at the upcoming BIBA conference, is insurtech, and the impact of new technology on the relationship between insurers and brokers should not be underestimated.

Terrorism risk has changed – Are your clients protected?

10 May 2018

Executive Director, Duncan McClean, shares his views on non-damage terrorism insurance and looks forward to the annual BIBA conference and exhibition next week.

Terrorism - a horrific and common place feature of the modern-day world we inhabit.

Having been made in Northern Ireland myself, and by parents from either side of “the divide”, I’ve seen more than most readers here, the devastating effects that Terrorism can deliver in terms of damage to people, lives and property.

BIBA 2018 - In an uncertain world it’s time for trust

09 May 2018

Uncertainty is the theme of 2018, with everything from Brexit negotiations and the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation to insurance sector specifics such as the Ogden discount rate and the Insurance Distribution Directive creating potential instability.

Managing this type of risk is business as usual for insurance professionals but, with so many unknowns, it’s essential to work with trusted partners.

Long-term commitment

How a BIBA veteran still enjoys his annual pilgrimage

08 May 2018

After 30 years in the industry, over 20 of which have been spent making the annual pilgrimage to BIBA, I still look forward to those two days in the middle of May each year where the insurance market comes together.

It’s all about connections

Like many, it’s the key date in my diary.  A chance for me to connect with business colleagues from across the country, discuss key industry issues and talk about business opportunities.

Why I’m a Bel-IBA

02 May 2018

BIBA may mean different things to different people, but for ARAG’s Head of Sales, Andy Talbot, the conference and exhibition is all about the conversation.

It may not be particularly fashionable outside the insurance world, but I’m a big fan of the BIBA conference - does that make me a ‘Bel-IBA’? I really look forward to this time of year, as we’re finalising our plans for what are always two of the most important days in the insurance calendar.
