The big issue for the insurance industry is how to build profitable business growth.

A complete insider's guide addressing the issues will be revealed at a major Insurance Times conference to be held on 15 September in Cardiff at the sumptuous St David's Hotel on the waterfront.

Profitable Business Growth, which is sponsored by the Welsh Development Agency, is aimed at helping companies in the general insurance sector make the right business critical decisions.

Topics will include regulation, technology and trends and there will also be exclusive research unveiled by the WDA - which has been provided by readers of Insurance Times.

A range of top speakers are set to appear at the event with Anthony Hilton, financial editor of the London Evening Standard, providing the keynote address.

Other speakers include Amanda Blanc, distribution and customer service director with Groupama, PBS chief executive Jonathan Davey and Hugh Price, partner with solicitors Hugh James.
