When the Wholesale & Specialty Insurance Association (WSIA) held its Emerging Issues & Innovation Committee recently, Oxford’s very own Steve Tunks took his place on the panel during the two day event at the Hyatt hotel in Dallas airport.

The Emerging Issues & Innovation Committee serves the WSIA membership and wholesale insurance industry across all segments of the marketplace by collaboratively identifying, evaluating, discussing and providing useful knowledge that will enable the membership to better analyse, manage and underwrite emerging issues and trends.

Through the course of the conference various topical issues were discussed, including robotics, blockchain, and the rising importance of Artificial Intelligence. Steve and Anitta Valdez of Munich Re delivered a paper on the impact crypto currency was having on the insurance world.

Speaking after the event Steve said, “Being part of the WSIA panel provides great exposure for Oxford within the Wholesale & Specialty Insurance community and allows us to have a voice within one of the most interesting discussion groups that WSIA host. This was the first committee of its kind that I have attended and I am very much looking forward to taking part in their future debates.”
