The Geneva Association
Established in 1973, The Geneva Association, officially the “International Association for the Study of Insurance Economics”, is the leading international insurance think tank for strategically important insurance and risk management issues. The Geneva Association identifies fundamental trends and strategic issues where insurance plays a substantial role or which influence the insurance sector. Along with the development of research programs, regular publications and the organization of international meetings, The Geneva Association is the leading voice of the largest insurance groups worldwide in the dialogue with international institutions. In parallel, it advances - in economic and cultural terms - the development and application of risk management and the understanding of uncertainty in the modern economy.
The Geneva Association:
- detects early ideas and emerging debates on political, economic and societal issues concerning our industry, notably financial stability, climate risk, global ageing and liability concerns;
- inspires and initiates further research into and analysis of such issues;
- organizes debates on the issues detected;
- disseminates research results and analysis and pushes underlying ideas among clearly defined target groups.
The Association carries out this role through six research programs: Insurance and Finance, Regulation and Supervision, Risk Management, Life and Pensions, Health and Ageing and Insurance Economics.
The Geneva Association has offices in Geneva and Basel, Switzerland and is a non-profit organization funded by its members. Membership comprises a statutory maximum of 90 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) from the world’s top insurance and reinsurance companies. It organizes international expert networks and manages discussion platforms for senior insurance executives and specialists as well as policy makers, regulators and multilateral organizations.
