Denis Kessler gives Global Keynote Industry Address at the 10th India Rendezvous

Denis Kessler (Chairman & CEO of SCOR SE), accompanied by Victor Peignet (CEO of SCOR Global P&C), Romain Launay (COO of SCOR SE) and Michel Blanc (Chief Underwriting Officer - P&C Treaty Asia Pacific) visited India on 18 and 19 January 2017 for the 10th India Rendezvous in Mumbai, at which Denis Kessler delivered the Global Keynote Industry Address.

On the evening before the conference, Mr Kessler hosted cocktails followed by dinner at the Taj Palace Hotel, Mumbai, for twelve CEOs from existing and prospective P&C and life clients. 

The CEOs enjoyed the warm hospitality and company of the Group’s Chairman and senior management. They were appreciative of SCOR’s commitment to the Indian market, and the regulatory approval for setting up a branch in India was seen as a logical next step to further strengthen and deepen SCOR’s relationships in India through a local presence. 

During the conference, Mr Kessler’s Global Keynote Industry Address, entitled “The Global Reinsurance Market & its Impact on India”, made a very positive impact on a large and highly receptive audience. Following the speech Alice Vaidyan, GIC Chairperson, met with Denis Kessler, Victor Peignet and Santhana Gopalan, Managing Director of SCOR’s India office, to discuss the recent regulation on order of preference.
