Case Studies

Catastrophic Risks

Catastrophic Risks

Pinnacle was retained by an insurance company specializing in catastrophic risk to identify and test alternative sources of risk financing capacity including traditional reinsurance and catastrophe bonds. In order to complete the project, Pinnacle designed a dynamic financial model to determine the cost/benefit of alternate risk financing strategies.

Florida Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses

Florida Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses

In 2006 and 2007, Pinnacle was retained by Floridians for Lower Insurance Costs (FLIC) to conduct independent actuarial studies to determine the cost implications on the Florida Health Care system from various changes to the Florida No Fault Law.

First in 2006 we conducted an independent actuarial study to determine the cost implications of repealing Florida’s current no-fault law. Pinnacle also priced first party medical payments benefits of $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 as replacements for current personal injury protection (PIP) benefits.

Then in 2007, Pinnacle determined the impact that would result from the sunset of Florida’s current no fault law. Pinnacle also determined what current PIP insurance costs will be absorbed by other insurance programs compared to costs that will go unreimbursed since the current PIP coverage will be eliminated at the time that no fault is sunset. Pinnacle testified before the Florida House Committee Working Group on Insurance in support of the analysis. The Florida No Fault Law was sunset only to be reenacted immediately thereafter.

Personal Lines

Personal Lines

Pinnacle was approached by a national insurer that wanted to develop a more sophisticated homeowners rating program. Their current homeowners plan was a traditional rating approach and was only based on a few factors, and the company felt they were not taking full advantage of the potential in the homeowners market. Pinnacle, through the use of predictive modeling, assisted the carrier in designing a new rating and tiering structure, which included the introduction of by-peril rating and new territory definitions. This new structure allowed the company to be more precise in rating homeowners, resulting in more adequate and competitive rates for a broader spectrum of risks.
