Registration is open for our March APEX Webinar.

Join Principals Rob Walling and Derek Freihaut as they share Pinnacle’s new methodology for assessing internal risk distribution, Expected Adverse Deviation (EAD).

This webinar will provide:

  • relevant background on the issue of risk distribution,
  • the actuarial basis for the EAD metric, and
  • applications of the EAD model to a variety of insurance coverages, including enterprise risk captive (ERC) coverages.
We encourage interaction with our presenters; please feel free to submit questions before the webinar to: apexsupport@pinnacleactuaries.com. We will address them during the presentation as time allows. You will also have the ability to submit questions in "real-time" during the session.

This webinar may qualify for up to 1 hour of continuing education.
