Conference on "Enterprise Risk Management and Corporate Governance for Insurance Firms" organised on 17 May 2011 in Lille (France)


The recent financial crisis has shown that existing national and supranational solvency and capital adequacy regulations raise important issues for integrity of enterprise wide risk management systems and effectiveness of corporate governance.

Since 2007 the European Union has proposed a significantly enhanced Solvency Directive (Solvency II), which emphasises effective governance and risk management to provide adequate levels of capital within the insurance industry. Proposed changes to current international reporting standards will significantly enhance the accountability requirements which in turn have implications for understanding multi-dimensional aspects of successful management of these changes.

The conference 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. Understanding different perspectives is important for raising awareness of the multi-faceted nature of enterprise risk management in the global insurance industry. These issues are likely be highly relevant to policy makers, academics, professionals, and industry leaders and others interested in the field.

A number of thought leaders on the subject will present their own positions and debate these with the audience, including:

  • Neil Cantle, Managing Director, Milliman
  • Jean-Paul Louisot, Professor of Risk Management, Universite Paris 1
  • Martin Eling, Professor of Risk Management, University of Ulm
  • W Jean Kwon, Professor of Risk Management, St John’s University
  • Stuart Greenbaum, Professor of Risk Management, Washington University in St Louis
The conference will be chaired by Paul Klumpes, Professor of Accounting at EDHEC Business School. Previously, he was professor of accounting at Imperial College London and Professor of Risk Accounting at Nottingham University Business School. He is an Australian CPA and Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries. His research interests cover the inter-relationship of public policy and voluntary reporting, regulation, financial management and control of financial services, particularly related to pensions and life insurance. This growing personal interest has been associated with a growing political, economic and social awareness of the importance of pensions and financial services by government and public policy making institutions. He has consulted to a number of private and public organisations in these areas.
