September 25 2023 by

With the world jumping from one crisis to another, especially since the turbulent start to the 2020s, the Pan-Asia Risk and Insurance Management Association (PARIMA) is set to deliberate on the need for resilience and adaptability at its upcoming conference in Tokyo themed, “Adapting to Permacrisis.”

The conference, to be held at the Akasaka Intercity Conference Centre in Tokyo on October 19, 2023, aims to equip risk professionals with the knowledge and tools necessary to respond to unprecedented risks that businesses are facing. From climate change to sustained inflation, debt crises to geopolitical tensions, business risks are becoming increasingly interconnected in ways that can amplify risks such as supply chain disruptions.

The PARIMA Tokyo 2023 conference will feature 13 sessions covering: the future of risk management, geopolitical risks, disaster recovery, captives, the cyber threat landscape, parametric, people risks, insurance-linked securities, business continuity response, ESG, intellectual property, strategic risks, among other topics.

The event is expected to draw more than 250 senior risk professionals and industry experts from Japan and Asia Pacific and will feature regional and local leaders from the risk and insurance sectors and leading Japanese multinational companies.

Some of the main speakers include: Shin Hosaka, vice-minister for international affairs of ministry of economy, trade and industry, Japan; Arnaud Vaissié, chairman and CEO of International SOS; Tomoyuki Motoyama – managing executive officer of Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance and executive officer, and chief digitalisation officer of MS&AD Group; Clemens Philippi, chief executive of MSIG Asia; James Nash – president and CEO of AIG Japan Holdings, Tatsuya Jake Yamamoto – CEO, Japan of Aon; Ronak Shah – chief executive  of QBE Singapore; and Gary LaBranche, CEO of Risk and Insurance Management Society .

Franck Baron, the founding chairman of PARIMA, commenting on the goal of the conference said: “Let us break down silos, foster cross-functional collaboration with colleagues, countries and cultures, and embrace diverse perspectives to build a stronger risk management industry.”

“Over the years, I have seen tremendous progress as we strive for a better future in APAC for the risk and insurance management industry and community. Starting from Singapore, our vision expanded across Asia Pacific, and today, Japan proudly stands as one of our flagship regions,” he added.

The October event in Tokyo follows PARIMA’s successful conference in Mumbai in June this year.

PARIMA is also celebrating its tenth anniversary at the upcoming Tokyo conference. You can register for the conference here.
