CASUALTY LOSS RESERVE SEMINAR
September 14-15, 2009
Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel
Increased Scrutiny and Changing Risks – Are You Prepared?
The current crisis has raised public and regulatory scrutiny of our financial institutions. Property-Casualty insurers and actuaries are not immune. The 2009 Casualty Loss Reserve Seminar will help you rise to the challenge and demonstrate your unique talents to understand, evaluate and manage risk. This year’s seminar will emphasize “hands on”, practical sessions in estimating reserve risk and evaluating the effectiveness of various estimation techniques. In addition, professionalism courses will be offered to help you comply with standards and communicate results.
The Casualty Loss Reserve Seminar (CLRS) provides a forum for presenting and discussing significant issues in loss reserving. The program includes a range of topics to interest professionals and students in a number of related disciplines. Moreover, the seminar meets the continuing education needs of actuaries and other professionals whose responsibilities include loss reserving.
The seminar is recommended for risk and insurance managers, actuaries, actuarial students, accountants, underwriters, insurance regulators, and others who require an understanding of recent state-of-the-art developments, as well as traditional loss reserve methods and models. Sessions on advanced reserving topics, including emerging and regulatory issues, reinsurance, and accounting, are designed for experienced loss reserving professionals.
Intermediate reserving topics are recommended for individuals already familiar with basic evaluation techniques who wish to increase their knowledge of loss reserve methods and models. Sessions on basic reserving topics are recommended for individuals with limited experience evaluating loss reserves. In addition, a wide range of special topics will interest the general audience at all levels of experience.
The seminar follows a format of panel sessions, many using slides and printed handouts to augment the presentations. Illustrative numerical examples are used whenever possible. Audience participation is encouraged.
