Philippe Fassier, Sales Director and Partnerships Manager at Allianz Partners, International Health attended the Previnter Summer University on May 17th. As round table speaker, Philippe discussed "The increase of local regulations: strong impacts on the management of international mobility", and the development of expatriate benefits.
The discussion highlighted that the end of grey areas is desired by regulators due to the economic stakes of expatriate benefits, combined with a rising level of consumer protection via stronger regulations both on the level of benefits (aligned with local needs) and on the protection of medical data.
This results in the multiplication of local contracts in a logic that remains global. Phillippe therefore emphasised the importance of dialogue with the regulators to agree expectations and the agenda for compliance, giving the example of the forthcoming creation of a subsidiary in Canada in order to respond to local issues.
