SIRC- Singapore International Reinsurance Conference
Barbican’s senior reinsurance underwriters including Andy Caldwell, deputy active underwriters and Simon Saunders, divisional head of marine, aviation and transport, will once again be attending the SIRC conference and have taken a table the ‘Lloyd’s Coffeehouse’ located at Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands.
The Singapore International Reinsurance Conference (SIRC) was launched in 1991 to fill in the gap between the biennial meetings of the East Asian Insurance Congress (EAIC) to give insurance professionals a forum to meet and discuss issues of the day, while taking stock of developments in the reinsurance market; and starting preparations for the following year’s treaty renewals.
Like the EAIC, the SIRC has gained a strong reputation and loyal following over the years, with reinsurers, insurers and reinsurance brokers from all over the world attending and conducting bilateral discussions alongside the main conference, which attracted close to 1,000 registered delegates from around the world to the last event in 2015. From 2017 onwards, the SIRC will be organised annually.
The SIRC is organised by the Singapore Reinsurers’ Association (SRA) and co-organised by the Reinsurance Brokers’ Association of Singapore (RBAS) and the Singapore College of Insurance (SCI).
