Disease Claims Conference

Looking ahead at the key issues for insurers over the next 5 years.

While significant developments are nothing new for those who deal with disease claims, as we look ahead over the next 5 years we see signs of even greater change on the horizon. 

The DWF disease conference takes place on 3 March in our London office and brings together market leading experts to look at key strategic issues which will need consideration by insurers, run-off insurers, brokers, self-insureds and all those businesses with potential liabilities for disease claims. 

Our panel of expert speakers and topics includes:
