Call for Papers - Enterprise Risk Management and Corporate Governance for Insurance Firms

The International Centre for Financial Regulation (ICFR) and EDHEC Business School are jointly holding a conference, “Enterprise Risk Management and Corporate Governance for Insurance Firms” on 17 May 2011 at the brand new EDHEC Business School campus in Roubaix, France.

The recent financial crisis has clearly shown that existing national and supranational solvency and capital adequacy regulations raise important issues for the integrity of enterprise wide risk management systems and the effectiveness of corporate governance. It is, therefore, no surprise that since the crisis began in 2007 the European Union has proposed a significantly enhanced Solvency Directive (Solvency II), which emphasises the importance of effective governance and risk management to provide enhanced levels of capital adequacy within the insurance industry. The new regulatory principles within the Directive have also important implications for the effective corporate governance of key players in the insurance market. In addition, proposed changes to current international reporting standards will significantly enhance the accountability requirements. These developments, in turn, have a number of implications for understanding the multidimensional aspects of successful management of these changes including: responding to a changing regulatory environment; creating, and then meeting, shareholder expectations; and developing the business strategy more effectively.

This conference, organised by the ICFR and EDHEC Business School will provide a forum for discussing the latest research into the current issues and practices of “Enterprise Wide Risk Management and Corporate Governance for Insurance Firms”, whilst focusing on the implications of changing solvency, capital adequacy and accountability requirements, and their interrelationships between various regulatory, shareholder and management perspectives on the effective management of these organisations.
