The 2014 FERMA Benchmarking Survey got off to a great start immediately after the Easter holiday with a launch in all 20 FERMA member countries. Within a week there were nearly 400 responses, and this year FERMA is offering some special incentives to encourage participation:

Survey respondents have the opportunity to win one of six wonderful prizes:

  • One free registration at the FERMA Forum 2015 in Venice (1 prize)
  • Three free nights’ accommodation at the FERMA Forum 2015 in Venice (2 prizes)
  • One night free accommodation at the FERMA Seminar 2014 in Brussels (3 prizes)

Toluna, the independent company running the survey, will pick the winners at random once the survey closes and winners will be notified within three weeks.

Risk managers can also help their national association by completing the survey. The first three associations to reach their target number of responses will receive €2000 sponsorship from FERMA to spend on their own conferences.

Michel Dennery, FERMA Vice President and a member of the survey working group, says, “Risk managers who respond to the survey will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing to the knowledge of risk and insurance management in Europe with the added benefit of supporting their association and possibly winning an award for themselves.”

Any risk manager who has not received a personal invitation to take part in the survey can send his/her name, business title, company name, country and email address to
