Multiple June 11, 2019 Posted in: Blog Posts, ERM, Insurance / Insurers, News
The 2018 news cycle was flooded with disturbing images of roaring fires in California. These wildfires were cataclysmic in scale and severity. Even more concerning is that the 2018 severe wildfire season was preceded by an awful 2017 season, which was the worst in recorded history until it was outdone by 2018.

Reflections on the 2019 DCIA Spring Forum
Michael Paradiso June 10, 2019 Posted in: Blog Posts, Captives, News
The Delaware Captive Insurance Association (DCIA) held its Spring Forum May 7-8 at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Captive service providers, captive owners and Delaware’s captive regulators gathered in attendance for sessions covering a range of relevant topics. The conference carried regulation as its unofficial theme, perhaps not unexpectedly, with each session analyzing a different aspect or angle. The impact of politics on captive regulatory decisions, the legal hurdles of insuring the key players of the cannabis industry, and the various state-specific treatments of self-procurement tax were a few of the topics covered.

The insurtech boom caught many insurance companies off guard. When they did not adapt quickly enough, they lost a significant portion of their competitive position. New approaches to claims adjusting, premium pricing and underwriting will continue to arise. The best chance insurance companies have to remain relevant is to develop unique technologies and rating variables to outprice the competition.
