Multaqa Qatar 2014, the flagship (re)insurance event of the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) Authority boasts of an impressive list of key decision makers from across the industry and the public sector of Qatar. On an endeavour to understand how upbeat the attendees are for the upcoming Multaqata’ameen Qatar shares views of commentators from the (re)insurance fraternity. 

Salim Mansour, Country Manager, AXA Qatar 

"I would be keen to discuss the new mandatory health insurance law and its updates. Further, I would also like to know more about the role of the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) and the role that the QFCA and QFCRA would play in protecting the interest of its clients that are investing in the State of Qatar. Would the law have a negative impact on the investments made by the insurance companies’, which are licensed under the QFC? Unlike last year, I hope to see more participation coming in from insurance companies and brokers.” 

Elie Hanna, Country Manager, AIG Qatar 

"I was very impressed with last year’s Multaqa Qatar. What was truly fascinating were the interactive tools, which were used to arrange meetings much ahead of time with the think-tankers and industrial experts of Qatar. Being a capacity provider for commercial lines, AIG Qatar has always had a very prominent presence at the Multaqa. It surely serves as a good networking ground where we get to meet our distribution partners and I look forward to attend it. Due to its growing popularity, it has now started attracting brokers from different parts of the world.” 


Michael A. Brogden, Country Manager, Cunningham Lindsey (Qatar) 

"Multaqa is of great importance to Cunningham Lindsey (Qatar) as it provides a forum for us to share our knowledge of both local and international insurance claim issues (including lessons learnt from recent major fires, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, riots etc. across the Cunningham Lindsey World footprint) with those who are best placed to benefit from our experiences (insurers, brokers and reinsurers), and who will shape the future of insurance in the State of Qatar.” 

Elias R. Chedid, COO, SEIB Insurance & Reinsurance Company LLC 

SEIB gives exceptional importance to Multaqa Qatar. Being a meeting place for global insurance professionals, the Multaqa has become a part of the business cycle continuum. Being held in one of the world’s most prominent business capitals, it is a good platform which discusses the right content with the right people. Multaqa Qatar takes us closer to Qatar National Vision 2030.” 

Prasad Aniyil, CEO, Marsh Qatar 

Since its first version, Multaqa has successfully served as a wonderful platform for insurance professionals in the region to meet and exchange their views and ideas. It also provides an update on (re) insurance market developments. I am eager to attend the Doha debate and panel discussions, which are related to the regulatory role and its contribution to insurance growth in Qatar and the region.” 

Dr. Kai-Uwe Schanz, Chairman of Multaqa Qatar
“We are looking forward to this year’s Multaqa which once again features an attractive conference agenda with contributions from leading regional and global decision-makers. Multaqa will not only live up to its reputation as the key platform for thought-leadership in the MENA region, but will also offer ample opportunities for delegates to meet and discuss business.”
 Akshay Randeva, Director Strategic Development, Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) Authority
“The growing stature of Multaqa Qatar is testament to the increasing relevance of the region’s insurance and reinsurance industry. It also demonstrates Qatar’s significant role in promoting the advancement of the industry. We are particularly proud that both H.E. the Minister of Finance and H.E. the Governor of Qatar Central Bank (QCB) have agreed to deliver keynote speeches at the 8th Multaqa Qatar conference.”
