Willis Towers Watson P.L.C. has called on listed companies in Singapore and Asia to prepare themselves for emerging risks by addressing the composition and effectiveness of their boards, Middle East Insurance Review reports. Many boards still lack the diversity and specialist skills required to successfully navigate new challenges, the insurance broker said. It is only through diversity of thought and experience – covering functional expertise, market experience, geographic exposure, tenure, and gender – that today's boards will be able to effectively navigate the challenges of the future, it added.
