APRIL 2017

Charleston, South Carolina, the venue for the FDCC Winter Meeting 2017, was the perfect setting for an exceptional meeting of the International Practice and  Law section.

 

I had the honour of chairing a well attended session on the legal, financial and regulatory implications of, Brexit. Three exceptional presentations from three highly qualified experts made for an interesting and thought provoking discussion that engendered a great deal of interest from the audience. The three speakers each presented not only a national perspective, but also looked at the implications of Brexit on the future of the EU. Stephen Carter from the UK, Jorge Angell from Spain and Christophe Adrien from France explored the potential ramifications and indeed projected a view that the Departure of the UK could herald the ultimate exit of a number of other European states.

Many of our US colleagues attended and it generated so much interest (and controversy) that we have all agreed that a further presentation is called for at the Annual meeting in Maui in July /August 2018, when we should have a clearer picture of the ramifications of Brexit.

The international section continues to expand, albeit a little slower that we consider ideal. That said we have a number of exceptional opportunities to enhance our membership with the Montreux ( Switzerland  meeting approaching this Summer ( 23-29 July ) and of course the combined AILA / NZILA /FDCC /ILAS /HKILA /AIDA meeting in Singapore 18- 20 October 2017.We will have a program in place for the upcoming summer meeting and encourage as many of you who are attending Montreux ,to actively participate.

For many of our North American colleagues Singapore will offer a wonderful opportunity to network in the World’s most rapidly evolving insurance and commercial market and, of course, visit a fascinating island nation that many have never seen before.  In Singapore, you will also meet many of my Aussie and Kiwi colleagues…. Should I promote that as a bonus??


Currently our international membership stands at 72 and while I chair the section I am supported by 8 Vice Chairs from a variety of nations, who all share a common goal, and that is to expand our international impact by selectively recruiting well credentialed FDCC members.
