Event Description

Behind the scenes of the 2.2€B "Fonds de Place" program dedicated to the post COVID recovery

In 2020, French insurers have made a strong commitment to support the real economy especially regarding sectors negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. This initiative triggered various interactions between several public institutions, the "Fédération Française de l'Assurance" (FFA) and several asset managers.
The "Fonds de Place" program has been successful in raising more than 2€B with three selected objectives in mind:
·         Support SME.
·         Build a strategy dedicated to the tourism sector.
·         Reinforce the French health industry.
This Insurance Series will try to expose to CFA members and candidates some colors on:
·         How the set-up of those funds has been achieved.
·         The several key actions needed to reach such a success.
·         The impacts expected from this "never done before" initiative with a specific focus on the tourism sector.
Our guests are experts and top managers at the forefront of this process, working with public authorities, the FFA or directly involved in the management of one of those funds.
Join us to discover the scenes behind one the most challenging fund structuring of the past decade, a collective Insurance industry response to the yet not solved pandemic issue we are currently living in.
This event will be held in French.
