Seminar on Personalized Insurance
An international seminar on Personalized Insurance organized by the
Insurance Association of Sri Lanka (IASL) jointly with the Federation of
Affiliation Insurance and Re-Insurance will be held from June 15 and 16
at the Cinnamon Grand.
"The main objective of this event is to meet the challenges of the
rapidly changing environment," said Chairman of the Organizing Committee
Insurance Association of Sri Lanka, Jagath Alwis.
"This is the first time that they have invited the Sri Lankan market
to organize a conference for the region affiliation. We have decided to
have the conference mainly based on personalized insurance. In
affiliation markets, personalized insurance are becoming more important
since now-a-days the lifestyles of people are changing. People are more
concerned about individual lifestyle," Alwis said.
The IASL consists of all the insurance companies operating in the
market. The Federation of Affiliation Insurance and Re-Insurance which
was set up in 1964 held its first conference in Cairo to promote
regional cooperation among the Insurance companies and also to develop
business within the affiliation region and to develop people and the
resources based on the market", he said. "At present the membership is
more than 50 countries in the affiliation region and it is for the
insurance and re-insurance company's of members including Sri Lanka," he
said. Therefore, there is a trend for personalized insurance such as
life insurance, health insurance and travel insurance. Considering all
these factors we thought this is an ideal theme and also ideal time to
discuss and communicate this to the community, he said.
"We are expecting around 350 people to participate in the seminar,"
