The International Credit Insurance & Surety Association (ICISA) hosted the first edition of “ICISA Surety Week” between 21 – 25 February 2022. ICISA Surety Week was a global event, aimed at increasing awareness of the valuable economic role of the Surety sector.
During the inaugural Surety Week, industry experts shared their views on topics as diverse as sustainability and technology, as well as many other important topics facing the industry today. A total of 26 specialists spoke during 8 separate virtual sessions featuring debates, webinars, interviews and presentations to an audience of over 1800 attendees. Among the speakers were senior leaders from regulators, banks, sureties, reinsures, and users of bonds.
Richard Wulff, Executive Director of ICISA said: ICISA’s decision to invite surety underwriters as well as a multitude of stakeholders has shown that there is a need for sharing knowledge about the surety industry in mature, as well as emerging surety markets. In spreading knowledge and best practice, ICISA fulfils its key role as the global trade association for credit insurance and surety companies. We are looking forward to the next event in September/October on trade credit insurance.
