In this edition, we focus on the ever-changing environment of technology and the impact it has on the financial services sector and our clients. From these articles, it is clear that we need to ensure that our clients are adequately insured and well informed of the cybercrime risks they may experience, and general fraud that occurs due to the state of the South African economy and international trends.
Syndicates identify opportunities on a daily basis to commit vehicle crime or fraud. I believe it is worth your while to read the article on vehicle cloning, issued by The South African Insurance Crime Bureau, as anyone can become a victim of vehicle crime.
In the article Gold shines brightly – a beneficiary of the “Japanisation” of the world?, Matthew Norwood-Young, Head: Sales and Marketing at Anchor Capital, acknowledges that it is still difficult to make predictions of a future spot value of gold. However, he believes the stars are aligning for the metal as an alternative currency and “insurance policy” in an environment where the macroeconomic backdrop is becoming increasingly uncertain.
The IING committee also focused on the commitment we made during the President’s Inauguration breakfast. We have provided RE training to almost 50 individuals and will train on this subject again towards the end of September. With our focus on educating the insurance industry in collaboration with the IISA, we also hosted the Motor Insurance Global Best Practices Forum in May. During this forum, organised crime in the motor insurance industry, effective underwriting practices and philosophies were discussed.
Finally, we held an exclusive well-attended CEO whisky tasting evening, where The Whisky Rebellion team entertained the industry executives and their taste buds. Read more about the successful event in this edition.
We remain committed to adding value, listening to our members and fulfilling the needs of the financial services sector.
On behalf of the IING committee, past presidents, members, and friends of the Insurance Institute of Northern Gauteng, I would like to congratulate the Insurance Institute of Gauteng on its 105th birthday. Your commitment to the industry is highly valued and appreciated, and we are honoured to be associated with you!
Be safe, until next time.
