Special Session Overview

The Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority recently found that insurance firms under their purview had less mature exposure management frameworks for casualty lines compared to property, urging firms to address this casualty risk assessment gap. The special session will provide an overview of the casualty emerging risk landscape, followed by insights from leading vendors on how to address this risk landscape utilizing catastrophe models.  The event will conclude with a panel discussion amongst modelers, industry, and NAIC regulators on taking action regarding casualty emerging risk from a U.S. regulatory perspective.
