Autonomous Vehicles – A Revolutionary Look at Insurance
Multiple May 24, 2022 Posted in: Blog, General

A decade ago, autonomous vehicles (AVs) seemed like a futuristic gimmick, out of reach.

Today, however – although the word “autonomous” might suggest otherwise – most people drive some sort of AV. Various rate filings, both for commercial and private passenger auto, give an idea of how autonomous vehicles are being priced with regard to insurance. Although rate filings do not exist for fully autonomous vehicles, many filings offer discounts for having an autonomous feature attached to the vehicle.

This raises the question – would fully autonomous vehicles be even more cost-effective with regard to insurance?

Saving Scott's Ridge

A year and a half ago, I moved to Biltmore Lake, North Carolina. One of the most beautiful natural vistas in this area is the view of Scott Mountain. The north face of the mountain, up to a section of the mountain called Scott’s Ridge, is owned by the Cecil family. After a long period of ownership, the Cecils made the decision last year to sell the 138 acres that make up Scott’s Ridge. I would hate for it to become a condominium development – but, as it turns out, Pinnacle has a client that can help conserve this natural beauty..

Turning “You Can’t” Into “I Will”
Luann Anderson March 08, 2022 Posted in: News
I have been thinking about an experience I had when I was young that had a formative impact on the direction of my professional life. 

When I was in grade school, I volunteered as a crossing guard, helping younger students safely cross the streets before and after school. After serving as a crossing guard for one year, I applied to be a “lieutenant.” However, I was shocked to be told that girls couldn’t be considered for this role. Subconsciously, this experience influenced my career; instead of making me accept the role I was supposed to fulfill, it gave me the push I needed to take up space in the world.
