Willis Towers Watson Launches Industry Risk Forum for Ports and Terminals

December 2, 2021

Insurance broker Willis Towers Watson announced the launch of a dedicated risk forum for the ports and terminals industry.

With ports and terminals client members worldwide, as well as risk forum specialists from Willis Towers Watson, the forum acts as a member’s network to explore risk identification and response, while delivering customized risk management solutions.

Reinforcing the group’s focus on the industry’s risk landscape, the forum is collaborating with the Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, a long-term Willis Research Network partner, to develop an index of risk disruptors to be launched in 2022.

“We are delighted to be developing a dedicated risk community for such an important sector. Ports and terminals have faced immense change, and pressures brought about by issues such as technological transition, climate change, cyber, supply chain and operational risk, are changing the shape of the industry,” commented Ben Abraham, CEO, Global Marine, Willis Towers Watson.

“The Ports and Terminals Risk Forum provides a network through which knowledge and expertise can be shared to create a stronger and more resilient industry. The development of this network follows the success of the global aerospace communities and we look forward to continuing to grow these specialist risk networks across a number of different lines to help develop customized solutions,” he added.

Willis Towers Watson’s Global Marine team has 550-plus marine risk and insurance specialists working together as one global team in more than 55 locations.
