RGA Leaders of Tomorrow to Take Center Stage at the Global Insurance Forum 2023

New York, New York – July 11, 2023: The 59th Global Insurance Forum presented by the International Insurance Society (IIS) and the Pacific Insurance Conference (PIC) will bring together insurance leaders from across the world at the Hilton Singapore Orchard on Nov. 5-7, 2023.

The event will include both an awards ceremony and a panel discussion featuring
2023 participants in the RGA Leaders of Tomorrow program. 

Reinsurance Group of America, Incorporated (RGA), a leading global life and health reinsurer, is a 2023 Global Insurance Forum Gold Partner and the sponsor of the RGA Leaders of Tomorrow. The program is designed to support and motivate insurance professionals who have demonstrated executive leadership potential. Participants work with senior executive mentors to examine strategic issues, explore opportunities for deeper engagement across core business functions, and expand global peer connections.

“We are driven by the issues that concern the industry, and a key priority shared globally is the need to invest in talent. Our longstanding partnership with the RGA on the Leaders of Tomorrow mentorship program fosters the development of future leaders, serving a crucial role to the sustainability and collective success of the industry,” says Josh Landau, president of the IIS.

“RGA has been a proud sponsor of the Leaders of Tomorrow program for nine consecutive years demonstrating our dedication to helping develop talent that will continue to drive the insurance industry forward,” said Arthur Ozeki, Executive Vice President, Head of Asia, RGA. “The Leaders of Tomorrow program highlights our strong partnership with the IIS and our mutual commitment to promoting education and thought leadership for the next generation of leaders.”

As part of the program, mentees publish and present original papers. While all candidates are considered future leaders, one candidate will be selected for the RGA Leaders of Tomorrow Award, and a select group of three candidates will be featured on a panel at the Global Insurance Forum entitled “Insights from Future Leaders on Industry Challenges and Opportunities.”

Beyond the RGA Leaders of Tomorrow program, the 2023 Global Insurance Forum will offer insights from 50-plus executives and thought leaders on the theme of the “Accelerating Value of Insurance.” The robust agenda will explore topics like “Insurers’ Strategies to Enhance Sustainability,” “Improving Health Outcomes with Digital Connectivity,” “Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Insurance,” and “Unlocking the Promise of Asia.”
