Scott guides clients by quantifying all aspects of property and casualty risk, and has been in the insurance industry since 1995. He has experience providing quantitative models to help clients manage all aspects of their property and casualty risk programs.

He has helped clients choose the most advantageous structure for their insurance program through loss forecasting with volatility estimates, tested collateral demands from primary casualty insurers, set budgets for retained risk on corporate financial statements or by setting captive insurance premiums through actuarial technical pricing, set financial statement reserves, and used economic capital modeling to support the operation of a captive insurance company.

Prior to joining Pinnacle, Scott was an actuarial consultant for a sister company to a major insurance broker. In this  role, Scott learned how to effectively work with the brokerage team to best serve the client’s interests. In addition, Scott was an actuarial  consultant for a Big 4 accounting firm. In this role, Scott learned the role of actuaries in the audit process, enabling him to support the audit team or the management team as the situation dictates.

He advised several Fortune 500 corporations on matters relating to financial reporting of unpaid loss and allocated loss adjustment expense liabilities and budget estimates. Scott also advised Texas-domiciled captive insurance companies on appropriate premiums, financial statement reserves and economic capital. Further, he advised two global captives on appropriate premium levels for property and excess casualty exposures.
