After the brief welcome speech, President of the National Reinsurance Company Mr. Nikolay Galushin made a presentation of the company, presented the top managers and described the spheres of their activities. 

Within the November meetings representatives of Chadbourne & Parke (Michelle George and Alexander Le) held a seminar entitled “Insurance Act 2015. Levelling the Playing Field”. The seminar outlined the key changes introduced by the Act to law in England in 2015 and provided practical guidance to brokers, reinsureds, reinsurers and their advisors to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Act. 

The second day, 23 November 2016, was entirely devoted to meetings and discussions. 

The business-friendly atmosphere and the possibility to communicate freely contributed to the achievement of the main goal of NBM, namely the conduct of the maximum possible number of meetings and discussions at the same place and within a short time. 

At the end of the second business day the “Beaujolais Nouveau 2016” closing dinner was arranged for NBM participants by the Moscow office of SCOR (France).
