1-  FERMA launches COVID-19 survey – participate now!

On 28 September, we launched a survey (here) asking corporate risk and insurance managers about their experience of the COVID-19 pandemic so far. FERMA encourages you to promote this survey among your Members since the results of the survey will:

·         be used to continue our advocacy work at the EU-level.

·         feed into a document summarising the findings that can also be used at national-level.

The deadline for responses is 16 October. The timeline is short since already in the coming weeks, the European Commission will embark on several workstreams related to the crisis, and encouraged FERMA to provide input as soon as we can. In particular, the Commission is very interested in FERMA’s feedback on the impact of the crisis and how it has been managed so far. FERMA therefore has a key, but short window of opportunity to further influence the discussion on solutions to the pandemic, as well as other large, systemic risks of the future.

Thank you for your support in distributing the survey to your Members.

·         Download the invitation email template, which you can use and send to your members.

·         Download the questionnaire in word format, should you wish to translate this for your members.
