Navigating Global Risk — The Verisk Risk Symposium Returns to London

JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 14, 2015 — Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK), a leading data analytics provider, will host the Verisk London 2015 Risk Symposium on June 23 at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel. The daylong event will feature content driving its central theme: “Navigate Global Risk.”

The symposium will feature a keynote address from Paul Jardine of XL Catlin. Jardine became chief operating officer of Catlin Group Limited in 2004 and chief experience officer of newly formed XL Catlin earlier this year. The title of his presentation is “Innovate or Die” and will cover topics such as “I need a bigger breakfast, because someone keeps eating my lunch.”

“We’re quite pleased to have Mr. Jardine on board,” said Chris Kent, director, International Operations, Verisk Insurance Solutions. “He’s well respected throughout our industry, and he’s well known for his direct and honest approach. We’re all eagerly anticipating his presentation.”

The day’s agenda will include discussions on three key topics:

  • The future of analytics in the global insurance industry
  • Emerging global risk: Geopolitical instability and cybersecurity risk
  • Cat bond lite: What comes next?

“We’ve found what we believe to be the perfect mix of topics for the day,” said Christopher H. Perini, chief marketing officer, Verisk Analytics. “Equally important, we’re fortunate to have leading experts in their respective fields discussing those topics. Our analytics panel will feature speakers from ISO, Munich Re, and SCOR; our emerging global risk discussion will feature speakers from AIR Worldwide and Verisk Maplecroft; and the panel on cat bond lite will feature speakers from Aon Benfield, Tullett Prebon, and Twelve Capital.”

Verisk Analytics President and CEO Scott Stephenson will kick off the day’s proceedings. After the keynote and panels, Verisk will host an open house that will include product demos from AIR Worldwide, ISO, Verisk Insurance Solutions, Verisk Maplecroft, and Xactware.

The gathering will mark the third consecutive year Verisk Analytics is hosting a daylong event tailored for the needs of the London and European risk markets.
