---
Multinational companies are well aware of the increase in risk and uncertainty when doing business across borders. Global insurance programs attempt to address most of those risks.

However, ensuring the effectiveness of such programs - making certain claims will be paid - can be a particular challenge because so many elements can delay, impede or void the payments by insurers and insureds. Elements as diverse as sanctions, banking practices and criminal acts can influence how - or if - programs respond. Tax, accounting and insurance regulations will affect if, where, how and how much a given claim may be reimbursed.

Join Rick Jensen, Willis International and Simon Russell, Willis North America in a wide-ranging discussion.
