MANAMA: A key forum on a broad range of issues related to professional liability risk across sectors as well as other risks associated with political violence is to be held in Bahrain this year.
Al Baraka Banking Group president and chief executive Adnan Yousif will be the keynote speaker at the Professional Liability Insurance Forum, which will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, Hotel and Spa on October 21 and 22.
The forum is being organised by the General Arab Insurance Federation in co-operation with the Bahrain Insurance Association (BIA) with the support of the Central Bank of Bahrain.
It will gather more than 300 high-level members of GAIF, leading insurance firms and other industry players, in addition to banks and corporates from the GCC and Mena as well as Africa.
"This is a timely event for the financial services sector as well as others and I'm pleased that I will have the opportunity to address participants at the upcoming forum," said Mr Yousif, who is also a director of the Union of Arab Banks.
"With the growth and further development of the banking industry in addition to other key sectors of the economy, risk also increases."
"We are delighted to announce the participation of one of the long-standing leaders of the region's financial services industry," said BIA chairman and Takaful International chief executive Younis Al Sayed. "Mr Yousif, with his vast knowledge and experience, will add valuable insight into the important topics being debated at the forum."
