What is MORO?

MORO stands for Meeting of Reinsurance Officials and is a unique, global gathering of reinsurance professionals from the mutual and cooperative sector that meets every two years. Registration has now opened for the 2018 MORO which takes place in Montreal, Canada, on 23-25 April this year. The theme for this year’s conference is Reinsuring the mutual way.

In 2016, 110 reinsurance managers from 54 companies in 25 countries gathered in London to learn from and to do business with each other and similar numbers are expected at the 2018 MORO in Canada.

Why ICMIF members choose to attend MORO?

The MORO is an outstanding opportunity for anyone working at mutual or cooperative insurers who are involved in reinsurance to come together and share knowledge and discuss issues of common interest with peers from around the world in a collaborative and supportive environment.  The three day event includes high level presentations, discussion panels, breakout sessions and one-to-one meetings, with a unique focus on how reinsurance issues affect mutual and cooperative insurers.
