 In a world faced with increasing uncertainty and risk, the insurance and long-term savings industry is committed to investing in communities and adapting in a changing climate, to secure futures across the UK. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) and ITN Business have produced news-style programme ‘Securing Futures’ to demonstrate the important work taking place across the sector and how working together is the key to success for a secure future for all.

 Anchored by Simon Thomas, ‘Securing Futures’ features interviews from the ITN London studio with industry “thought” leaders including ABI Director General Hannah Gurga who discusses what the sector is doing to support the economy and customers. Hannah also addresses areas where the industry could be challenged to drive change, and what needs to happen to ensure we are ready for future systemic events such as the recent pandemic.

 Barry O’Dwyer, Group CEO, Royal London and ABI President joins the programme to discuss the importance of long-term savings when it comes to the economy, how the industry is helping with the cost-of-living crisis and the Pension Attention campaign. ‘Securing Futures’ also includes an exclusive feature focusing on how the insurance and long-term savings industry has a role to play in the well-being of the nation, with thoughts from Dr Ali Hasan, Vitality Insurance's Chief Medical Officer, and Dr Yvonne Braun, ABI Director of Policy, Long-Term Savings, Health and Protection.

Our thanks to ITN Business for working with us on this programme which helps to shine a light on how the industry is helping to secure futures for customers, businesses and for our planet.”
