Insurance Ireland in partnership with A&L Goodbody is delighted to welcome you to our upcoming webinar. The session will focus on Outsourcing & ESG.

Outsourcing (and servicing) is a key component of most business models in the (re)insurance sector. Through an ESG lens, it also presents opportunities (and challenges). This session by A&L Goodbody will cover key tips and issues to watch out for when putting in place and/or updating outsourcing/servicing arrangements with ESG in mind.
