The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) is pleased to announce The Hon. Stephen Jones MP, Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Financial Services, as the keynote speaker at the ICA’s 2023 Annual Conference on 12 October in Sydney.

Minister Jones last month led an insurance delegation to London and Munich, where together with members of the ICA Board he met with global reinsurers and other leaders of the insurance sector to discuss critical issues impacting insurance premiums in Australia.

Minister Jones will be among 27 diverse speakers at the conference, with experts covering a broad range of issues including insurance affordability, employment, AI, climate change, cyber risk, and the 2022 floods.

To be held at the Fullerton Hotel, Sydney, the conference is expected to draw around 400 participants, including industry leaders, regulators, and commentators in one jam-packed event.

Quotes attributable to Insurance Council of Australia CEO Andrew Hall:

This is a crucial time for the insurance industry and its customers, with the impact of three years of extreme weather events, ongoing hard market conditions, and global inflation impacting affordability and availability across all lines.

Ensuring the settings are right for Australia’s insurance industry to continue to support communities and the economy has never been more important.

The ICA’s annual conference is a great opportunity for the industry and those who impact and are impacted by it to discuss these issues, hear from experts, and look at what is over the horizon.

Following the recent delegation to the major London insurance market, we are pleased that Assistant Treasurer Stephen Jones will give the keynote address and continue the collaborative and constructive relationship we have established since the election of the Albanese Government 18 months ago.
