Securité Assurance, a leading and financially robust insurance company, recently hosted a high-level event at the Yacht Club. The gathering brought together influential business leaders and prominent experts to delve into the critical theme of building resilience in the face of risk, a highly relevant topic given the current business environment. Moderated by award-winning journalist Ricardo Karam, the symposium featured three impactful sessions.

During the first session, CEO of Securité Assurance Anthony Khawam explored the various risks currently confronting Lebanese companies, delving into the psychology of building resilience. He shared solutions and best practices to help companies navigate key risks and potentially leverage them. Mr. Khawam also highlighted Securité Assurance’s financial robustness, supported by A-rated reinsurers, and showcased the company’s service, particularly in its handling of claims from the Port Explosion. He underscored Securite Assurance’s unique ability to structure solutions for large and complex risks, facilitated by its sister company, ISA Solutions, a Dubai-based reinsurance broker specializing in reinsurance and large risks.

The event continued with an exclusive fireside chat featuring Mr. Alain Bejjani, known for his significant and consistent growth of Majid Al Futtaim during his leadership. Drawing on his unparalleled experience, Mr. Bejjani addressed various risk-related topics, including managing risks amidst geopolitical uncertainties, expanding into new markets, maintaining resilient balance sheets and operations, fostering digitized operations while addressing cyber threats, and building cultures that retain and grow talent.

George Abou Adal, CEO of HOLDAL Group, highlighted the importance of building anti-fragile organizations through proper leadership and culture. Iyad Boustani, former Managing Director of FFA Bank, outlined strategies for building resilient balance sheets in a volatile financial environment. Mohamad Rabah, CEO of Beirut Digital District, discussed how companies can create attractive ecosystems and cultures that enable tech leadership and attract top talent. Deenah Fakhoury, Executive Director of United Nations Global Compact Network Lebanon, explained the significance of governance and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) for proper risk management.

The summit provided a platform for CEOs and business leaders to connect and network, offering insights and opportunities for growth to build stronger, more resilient organizations. Securité Assurance, positioning itself as a partner in resilience, anticipates future engagements that continue to explore and promote building resilience in the ever-changing landscape of risk.
