Keynote speakers at a global insurance symposium scheduled for May in Des Moines, Iowa, will include high ranking insurance officials from Japan and India.
Gov. Terry Branstad says Japan’s Vice Commissioner Masamichi Kono and the chairman of India’s Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority, T.S. Vijayan will lead the speakers at the event.
Also included will be retired U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson, who is now the CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
The symposium, to focus on the changing regulations in the international insurance marketplace, is scheduled for May 20 through May 22.
The privately-funded symposium is the result of collaborative work between the Greater Des Moines Partnership, the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart.
