Why attend? Many good reasons. One such reason is that if you study economics, mathematics, statistics, or computer science then these companies would simply love to meet you. Worth noting that the last financial crisis was primarily a banking crisis, and as insurance industry representatives have regularly emphasised, the solvency of the insurance sector as a whole does not appear to be threatened. Why not? The answer is risk management. Come to the event and find out more.
