In collaboration with AGCS, BELRIM organises this exchange on Supply Chain issues.
The globalization of trade and the quest for greater competitiveness have been accompanied by an increase in the complexity and fragility of the supply chain.
By pushing the boundaries, by multiplying the actors involved, our sourcing and distribution models expose the company to new risks that go far beyond operating losses. These risks become extremely difficult to evaluate and quantify.
How to know your supply chain?
How to improve visibility on the risk exposures of the supply chain?
How to identify and evaluate them?
What tools and methodologies can we use to improve risk resilience?
Are there insurance solutions?
Through the feedback of its speakers, the ambition of this exchange will be to provide concrete answers to the Risk Managers’ questions on one of the main risks of the company.
Speakers : Georgi Pachov, Global Practice Leader, Cyber & BI, AGCS.
Alexandra Pfalzgraf - VP Insurance & Risk Management – Schneider Electric
Laurent Giordani - Associé fondateur – Kyu Associés (cabinet de conseil en Management)
Presentations will be in English and French - Slides will be in English

Using your responses, we will try and provide you with answers, topics and consulting on the subjects that come the most often. Hence, we will not treat this questionnaire on an individual basis, but rather group the answers (when possible) to see what are the most important trends/thoughts in this working group.

BELRIM in partnership with HDI GLOBAL invites you to our next exchange on
E-mobility & autonomous driving: challenges for risk and insurance management
Have you already taken the time to reflect on risks and responsibilities linked to driverless vehicles? Or on the risks that go along with e-mobility? We all know the stories about the lithium-ion batteries. But do we understand the risks? And can we manage them? How is the insurance market reacting to this evolution?
This exchange will give you some insights (and some food for thoughts) on the next topics:
What is really meant? What is the status on the batteries? Are they really dangerous? What risks are there during manufacturing, transport, storage, use and recycling? What if the battery in cars, e-bikes or buses cause damage to third parties ? Can all these risks be managed and insured?
- Autonomous driving
Where are we today and what to expect in the future? What happens if the car causes an accident? Who will be responsible? Which insurance will pay? Do we need to rewrite the traffic code?
With support from his colleagues and together with Carl Leeman from Katoen Natie, Glenn Van Mele from HDI Global will give you insights in these topics. And will answer whatever question you have regarding e-mobility and autonomous driving.
This exchange will be followed by a networking drink.

FERMA Guest Invitation 2018 - Belrim (1)The European and international insurance market has been soft for several years and there are few signs of a general market hardening. Most within the commercial and corporate risk and insurance management community believe that this is the ‘new normal’.
But this stubbornly soft market surely presents risk managers with an opportunity to shift the focus firmly onto service and the most important thing of all: Claims.
For insurers and brokers this represents an opportunity too. In such a market the insurers must seek to differentiate themselves in any way other than price, and service is clearly the way ahead.
Those insurers that can build a valid and lasting reputation for the smooth, efficient, painless and rapid payment of valid claims will clearly be the winners.
Patrick Smith, former chairman of UK risk management association Airmic, neatly summed this up during a recent conference on claims in London as he said: “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
This year’s Brussels Risk Frontiers conference, held in partnership with Belrim, the Belgian risk management association and Ferma, the European Federation of Risk Management Associations, will focus on important developments and plans for the European risk management profession and then move on to a detailed discussion about this most important part of the market’s function: the efficient payment of claims.
