ERM & Emerging Risks

PCI Establishes Forum on Emerging Insurance Risks, Opportunities and Issues impacting Enterprise Risk Management

Chief risk officers and other high-level risk managers at insurance companies are facing a broad range of emerging issues that could significantly impact the insurance enterprise and possibly the industry. Recognizing the growing importance of the insurer's risk management process and strategy, PCI established a new member committee as a forum where those with primary responsibility for overseeing emerging risks can garner a better understanding of the key challenges and opportunities ahead.

The committee will address multi-faceted, emerging risks and opportunities such as cyber and the internet of things, autonomous vehicle technologies, legalization of marijuana, opioid usage trends, changes to insurance capital standards and other emerging enterprise risk management topics. This web page will offer related information, webcasts, publications and other resources.

For questions about the PCI ERM & Emerging Risks Committee or other related matters, please contact David Kodama, assistant vice president, research.
