Insurance Ireland is the representative organisation for the insurance sector in Ireland. Ireland is one of the leading insurance markets in the EU and globally.

Ireland is the 4th largest market for (re)insurance in the EU and one of the globally leading centres of excellence for (re)insurance services. Insurance Ireland takes great pride in the work we undertake on behalf of our industry, engaging with government, regulators, media and other stakeholders, as well as the wider public, to ensure that our voice is heard when and where it matters.

Insurance Ireland and its members are committed to support all political stakeholders in their efforts to improve the competitiveness of Ireland and the competition in our market for a sustainable Irish insurance market to the benefit of businesses and consumers.

The European Insurance Forum (EIF) is a leading European and international conference for the (re)insurance sectors. EIF is the forum for international, European and domestic Irish (re)insurers to get together for true industry engagement and consideration.

Since it was first held in 1999, EIF has become a signature event in the Irish and European (re)insurance and captive calendars: it is a place to learn, network and do business with peers and clients. The conference has built a reputation for considering the strategic trends and challenges affecting the (re)insurance and captive industry.

EIF’s reputation and attendance grow annually with a delegate post-conference survey rating of 4+ (out of 5, 5 being excellent). We will continue to grow the number of delegates as we create a programme that has relevance for all of Insurance Ireland’s industry sectors.

Over the years, we have had many prestigious keynote speakers including Thomas Buberl, Global CEO of AXA Insurance, Charles Brindamour, CEO, Intact Financial Corporation, Patrick Tiernan, Chief of Markets, Lloyds of London, Derval Rowland, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland and Peter Conradi, Europe Editor of the Sunday Times and author. Last year we delved into the themes of geopolitical risk and macroeconomic pressure, climate change, digital transformation, and a new era of protectionist trade policies. EIF 2023 allowed us to dive deeper into these topics and assess what ‘A New Era for Insurance’ could and should be.

The theme of EIF 2024 ‘Insuring a World in Transition’ will once again allow us to dive deeper into these topics and will focus on the opportunities and challenges that will shape our industry in the future.
