The LIMRA Annual Conference is one of the largest gatherings of senior executives representing diverse sectors of the financial services industry. Our members and partners come together for strategic industry insights and high-level networking — a must-attend for executives seeking to take charge of change.
Change across the industry is occurring at an unprecedented pace, fueling the urgency to innovate and transform. Leaders entered the year facing a business landscape altered by low interest rates, changing regulations, and ever-increasing consumer expectations. They are challenged to strike a balance with legacy systems, practices, and processes as they look to the future of distribution, talent, and technology.
Amidst these industry changes, a greater change gripped the globe - the COVID-19 pandemic. As we work through the impact and disruption of this unprecedented change on our industry, it reminds us that leadership matters most in moments of extreme stress. Taking charge in this environment means fully understanding and prioritizing stakeholder needs, applying your greatest strengths, involving employees, and leading with credibility. How companies respond during and after this crisis will influence the industry for years to come.
As we lead these challenges, we believe the best days are still ahead. Our contribution to society — to protect against risk and provide financial security — has never been more important. We remain resilient, continuing to generate growth around the world and maintain overall profitability despite turbulence in the global economy.
LIMRA’s 2020 Annual Conference will focus on the strategies that will help us take charge of the change in our world. Our program will feature forward-thinking executives from diverse industries. We will discuss key strategies in areas that will influence the future of our industry and the markets we serve, including: distribution and marketing, regulatory issues, data and technology and other strategic issues.
