On-Demand Webinar: COVID-19 Economic Impact and Future Outlook

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, our industry is facing a broad array of challenges that impact insureds of every size and in every industry. While insureds are evaluating staffing decisions, supply chain issues, and when and how to reopen, their P&C and group benefits insurance placements are a critical component of the planning process.

In the first of a series of webinars, we hear from an economist, Anirban Basu, on the economic impacts of COVID-19 and what we can expect in the future. While no one has a crystal ball and there are varying opinions on the magnitude and duration of the pandemic’s impact on our economy, this webinar is intended to complement the conversations you are having with your clients about how to plan for the next 12 to 24 months. The webinar is available to watch now below.
