The state of Iowa on May 20-22, 2014, will host its first ever Global Insurance Symposium, a privately funded event that aims to bring insurance professionals and regulators from around the world together to discuss the challenges facing the global insurance industry and how those challenges may impact the insurance business in the United States.
Organized by the Greater Des Moines Partnership, the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart, keynote speakers include Japan’s Vice Commissioner Masamichi Kono; T.S.Vijayan, chairman of the India Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA); and Sen. Ben Nelson, chief executive officer of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
Iowa Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart says the state-based insurance regulatory system in the United States has a good story to tell. He plans to take the opportunity at the forum to share that message with the world.
