The 40th Korean Re Seminar Brings Together Global Reinsurance Experts

Korean Re successfully hosted the 40th Korean Reinsurance Seminar from May 20 to 24, 2024. The opening ceremony and a diverse range of seminar activities were held at the Korean Re head office in Seoul, as well as various industrial sites around the country over five days. This year, Korean Re welcomed 21 delegates from 17 insurers across 12 jurisdictions, including China, the UK, France, Switzerland, and Vietnam.

The comprehensive program featured insightful presentations by Korean Re on underwriting techniques and major developments and issues within the Korean and global insurance markets. In addition, Korean Re arranged field trips to various industrial sites across Korea, allowing participants to observe industrial operations firsthand. A curated cultural program also provided delegates with an immersive experience of Korean culture.

Initiated in 1979, the Korean Re Seminar has evolved into a vital platform for information exchange and discussion on important topics affecting the global insurance industry. Since then, this annual event has been attended by a number of professionals from 60 jurisdictions across the world. It is now widely recognized among insurance market participants as one of the most prestigious reinsurance seminars in Asia.

In his opening address, CEO Jong-Gyu Won highlighted the significance of this gathering, saying, "The Korean Re Seminar has the longest history and tradition among our events. It is a source of great pride for us." He also expressed his hope that the event would serve as an opportunity for participants to gain valuable experiences and obtain the latest information on the global reinsurance market.
