“IRLA is the primary Legacy Association, globally. The membership benefit from extensive Market networking opportunities and educational events all aimed at expanding the dialogue around key Legacy issues, whilst also engaging with the Live Market to prepare the membership for future opportunities and challenges. Board members represent all areas of the (Re)Insurance industry, including Legacy and Live companies, ensuring there is energy within the Association both for the current activities and planning for the future. Each Board member must also participate on at least one IRLA Committee, such as the Education or Events Committee, being responsible for fulfilling the obligation to the membership for training and networking. Congress is the highlight of the year whereby the membership come together over 2 days for education, Market issue sharing and to create a dialogue around current and future Legacy matters.
IRLA should be a key part of the toolkit for anyone working in the (Re)Insurance Legacy environment.”
Mark Hallam, Managing Director, Swiss Re
I have been a member of IRLA for many years. It is the only forum in the UK supporting the activities and interests of the legacy market. It has been truly amazing to see the organisation go from strength to strength and be the recognised voice of legacy.
The membership has grown considerably over the years, and it is great to see the number of new members and a new generation entering the market and becoming members of IRLA’s Young Professionals Group. IRLA recognized the importance of training the next generation and ensuring that there is a continued pool of talent in the market and has an outstanding Academy which provides top class training and tackles relevant and thought provoking issues. Topics range from industry specific to areas such as diversity. All are well attended and generally sell out. The Academy factors into our training and development of staff.
Being a member of IRLA is not all work. There are many social events which are great opportunities to network and catch up with “legacy” friends and meet new ones. The highlight of the year is always the Congress in Brighton. It is 3 days of lively panel discussions that brings together both the live and run off insurers, reinsurers, service providers and regulators from around the world. It is an event not to be missed.
Romy Comiter, Managing Director, FTI Consulting.
The Continental Europe legacy market has still to deploy its potential. Yet Covid-19 implications, as well as regulatory requirements will accelerate adoption of capital and cost optimization strategies.
Today, legacy solutions should go beyond being a capital management instrument: they support the transformation journey of insurers towards a new, efficient, digital and growth driven, not legacy burdened, operational model.
Facing a volume of EUR >500bn in 2025, legacy represents a great industry to work for and IRLA a mandatory place for insurers, advisors, intermediaries and investors to shape the change.
