QBE Insurance Australia today announced a strategic partnership with the Risk Management Institution of Australasia (RMIA) that will see Australia’s largest global insurer and the leading risk association working together from now into 2018.

QBE will sponsor the RMIA’s premier annual risk management conference and join forces with the Institute to facilitate local chapter and thought leadership activities as part of the partnership.
 
QBE Executive General Manager – Intermediary Distribution ANZO, Jason Clarke said QBE was delighted to launch a partnership that will help the business better support and connect with the risk management industry.
 
“The development of strong relationships with risk professionals, through organisations like RMIA is critical to the continual growth and success of our business, helping us better support and understand industry needs and deliver improved solutions to our customer base,” he said.

“Both QBE and RMIA are championing the importance of risk management within the business community and facilitating innovation within the risk management arena – by partnering we are confident these efforts will be amplified.

“We are particularly proud to support RMIA in their upcoming preeminent risk conference in Canberra this November.”

RMIA President Anthony Ventura said the partnership with QBE would strengthen their position as an industry leader.

“The strategic partnership strengthens RMIA’s position in leading the development of the risk management community through national based professional development, education and networking, whilst continuing to support the individuals that are fundamental to a strong association. 

“This partnership sees QBE provide resources to the 2017 RMIA National Conference, as a Silver Sponsor, whilst also recognising and supporting the development of the RMIA chapters and their activities at a local level.

“We also welcome the contribution of QBE as a market leader, to support thought leadership activities and bring innovative content to our members.”

This year’s RMIA annual conference will take place in Canberra from 15 -17 November and is expected to bring together more than 450 risk professionals from various industries across the Asia Pacific.
