LDG Study Tour 2020: Applications deadline extended until 22nd January 2020


The LDG is touring the Asia Pacific!

The Lloyd’s Development Group is setting out to organize for a group of 20-25 participants from the Australian reinsurance and insurance market to travel to the Asia-Pacific region.

About the tour
Over a two week period, participants will be given an invaluable opportunity to develop a working knowledge of aspects of the Asia-pacific (re)insurance market as well as forge strong relationships with their market peers with which they will be touring. During the tour, participants will meet with clients, brokers, underwriters, law firms, regulators, loss adjusters and Lloyd’s Asia offices all the time representing their individual companies and the Australian Insurance market as a whole. The study tour will also include some site visits to major infrastructure sites and other places of interest for claims case studies of major cat and risk losses.
Selected study tour participants will meet on a monthly basis prior to embarking for the study tour to select a topic and prepare a presentation to be delivered at various meetings on tour. This will include an overview of the Australian insurance market in addition to a topic of their choice. Presentation duties will be shared between selected participants on the basis of contributions during pre-tour meetings. All participants will also be involved in conducting background research into firms and markets to be visited during the tour which will be shared amongst the group.
