Underwriting and Loss Prevention Workshop
The 2018 Underwriting and Loss Prevention Workshop disbanded on several topics, primarily covering personal and commercial lines of underwriting. To begin the day, Paul Tetrault of the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies covered the ever growing topic of Big Data and the future of underwriting, while he also explored the use of big data and the updates on regulators activities. Following the discussion on Big Data, was Jeff Cron of Berkley Re, discussing personal lines, specifically family and farm cyber protection. Sue Quimby of MSO presented on the emerging issues both on commercial lines and personal lines. Joshua Linsey and Kevin Cawley of Donegal Insurance Group discussed the business auto industry trends, what can be done to prevent losses, autonomous cars, and insuring vehicles used for Uber and Lyft. Following lunch, Nils Deacon of MSO discussed multi-unit common hazards in barns, dwellings, outbuildings, and small businesses. Concluding the day was Dave Lewis and Ted Bowling of the Mutual Inspection Bureau providing insights into emerging loss control issues.
