Industry Leaders Gather to Shape the Future of the Insurance Industry

Laurent Josi

Chief Executive Officer
- Gulf & Middle East

AXA Insurance (Gulf) B.S.C.(c)


"With a workforce of over 650 employees, 12 offices region-wide, a customer base of 500,000 and a gross written premium of over US$ 445 million, AXA Gulf is the leading non-life international insurer in the Middle East offering a wide range of insurance products and services for corporate and individual customers. As the CEO of the company in this region, I am delighted to be speaking at the prestigious MEIF 2010 and I am confident that the forum will again be the launching pad for important post-crisis strategies."

Jonathan Patrick Wilton

Chief Executive Officer


"MEIF 2010, focusing on "Back to Basics", comes at a fascinating time for our region and our industry. Seldom have the challenges been as pressing and the potential rewards so great. Whether we are here as members of the conventional insurance world, or as representatives of the burgeoning Takaful and Retakaful Industry, we face a combination of low returns on investment coupled with highly competitive risk rating the like of which has seldom been seen in our working lives.

For the weak and the uncertain, these are dangerous times indeed. For the focused professional, the opportunity is one of enormous potential for growth."

Giles Ward

Regional Managing
Director - MENA

ACE Insurance MENA


"The ACE group is very much committed to the MENA region - bringing underwriting and engineering expertise close to our broking partners and clients, and both participating and assisting in the development of the insurance market in this exciting part of the world.  Events like MEIF are of great importance in bringing the insurance community together to discuss the opportunities and challenges that face us, and ACE is therefore very pleased to be able to support MEIF 2010."

Ahmed D. Alumran

Executive Director


"The growth trends in captive insurance remain positive as more companies look for innovative solutions to risk financing, and as the provider of the most innovative insurance and risk management solutions in these areas, we are looking forward to sharing with you our experiences at MEIF 2010. This is our third year to partner with the annual Middle East Insurance Forum and we see the event as an exceptional platform for practical exchanges."
