As the pandemic and Ukrainian war have sent inflation soaring, central banks have had to consider their response. Combating supply-driven inflation requires a different approach to the demand-driven problems of the past. In BlackRock's 11th annual Global Insurance Report, 370 senior industry executives were surveyed to find out how the changing world is shaping insurers' actions and strategic thinking. This webinar series will explore the key themes that were identified in this year's report.
