The Insurance Distribution Directive (“IDD”) intends to increase market transparency and strengthen customers protection.
The directive impacts all market players involved in the manufacturing and/or distribution of insurance products. To be compliant, manufacturers, intermediaries and third parties may have to review their distribution model but also embrace a new distribution culture.
This training session aims at making IDD requirements understandable for each and every employee, whatever their role within the company. We choose to approach the topic using the “client experience journey” as a basis to ease the understanding of how IDD impacts the daily responsibilities of the various departments and functions.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to:
- Describe the purpose and main objectives of IDD.
- Apprehend the overall impact of the key requirements on your organization.
- Clearly understand the risks at stake if employees do not comply in their daily responsibilities.
- Explain what IDD means, impacts and how the organization will comply.
