Our President, Mr Peter Olyott and CEO, Lizelle van der Merwe, attended the World Federation of Insurance Intermediaries (WFII) World Council Meeting in Lisbon during March. The WFII represents insurance agents and brokers from over 100 national associations (in over 80 countries) across the world.
The aim of the meeting was to review the key issues and positions of the WFII from an intermediary perspective as well as to engage key stakeholders.
In the feedback from our CEO, Lizelle, she further noted the importance of understanding what has occurred in the UK and Europe in order that we understand the ramifications for the SA intermediary landscape.
In the below, the chairman of the WFII, Rick Jensen shares the briefing of the 2018 WFII Annual meeting and minutes regarding administrative matters.
