Participants can immediately apply their learning to real-life scenarios including designing and testing the optimal reinsurance program. 

Please note that some organisations may observe the NSW bank holiday on Monday 7th August.

What Makes RISC Unique?

  • Exclusive learning opportunity: Participants will get access to, and guidance from, senior practitioners who are among the industry’s top reinsurance experts. All have deep technical expertise honed from decades of international and regional industry experience.
  • Uniquely structured: Four days of intensive experiential learning that combines hands-on syndicate group work, expert presentations and knowledge sharing.
  • Active learning: Participants are grouped into syndicates and immersed in a real-life case study to design and test the optimal reinsurance program. Using physical tools , they will be mentored by a syndicate adviser in a small group to collaborate on the creation of the reinsurance program.
  • Assessment benefits: Participants that complete all the assessments can gain credit towards their ANZIIF membership. They also are eligible to claim a digital badge, which can be shared via LinkedIn, email or a variety of other online formats.
