Webinar: Risk Landscape in a Post-COVID-19 Era

Please join us on June 24, 2020, for this special webinar in partnership with Swiss Re Institute on Risk Landscape in a Post-COVID-19 Era.

About the Webinar

During this webinar our experts will explore emerging risks in a post-pandemic world. What trends are we beginning to see? With insights from Swiss Re’s SONAR report, we’ll discuss protectionism vs collaboration, the growing importance of resilience and address the uncertainty facing worldwide economies with a particular focus on China and their behaviour on the global stage. In addition to the risks, where can opportunities be found and how will companies adjust to these new challenges?
