May APEX Webinar - Inflation: Are Insurers Really Equipped to Handle It?

Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Central)

Registration is now open for the Pinnacle APEX Webinar, Inflation: Are Insurers Really Equipped to Handle It?

Is inflation here to stay? Although the recent inflation trend was originally said to be transitory, it’s now virtually unavoidable to go a single day without hearing of inflation or experiencing its impacts firsthand. This discussion will focus on the impacts of inflation from the perspectives of insurers and policyholders. In the approximately 40 years since inflation was previously this high, the property/casualty insurance market has drastically evolved. What impacts have we seen to date and what might we see moving forward? Are insurers equipped to handle inflation? 

We encourage interaction with our presenters; please feel free to submit questions before the webinar to 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 one hour of continuing education.

Please note that moving forward, Pinnacle’s APEX Webinars will move to a more engaging, user-friendly platform. We will still have the same great presenters and presentations, but we believe this new platform will enhance the APEX experience.
