On Friday 8 April, the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) will launch its 2016 European Risk and Insurance Survey in cooperation with its member associations in 21 countries. The survey is the widest expression of the views of risk and insurance managers across Europe. It has taken place every other year since 2002 and is now in its eighth edition.

The online questionnaire is available in seven languages: English, French, German, Italian, Polish Spanish and Turkish. As before, an independent research company will collect the responses and compile the findings. The results will be published as the FERMA European Risk and Insurance Report at the FERMA Seminar on 3-4 October in Malta. The report will then form the basis of further research by FERMA and its member associations, as well as providing benchmarks for individual risk managers to use in their own work.

FERMA Vice-President Cristina Martinez, who is the Survey project chairman said: “The survey is conducted by risk managers for risk managers. It is now in its eighth edition. This means we can see how we have developed as a profession since the first edition in 2002 and where we are today. There is no other source of information like this.”

The Survey questions have been compiled with support from the member associations and five commercial partners: AIG, Chubb, EY, Marsh and XL Catlin. There are three sections covering: the respondent’s organisation, the role of the risk manager and the risk management profession; European insights on risk management and risk financing, including insurance and captives.
