2013 Annual Meeting

Ceremony for New Fellows and Associates, Address to New Members

General Session: Cycle Management: Theory and Practice

Why do we have an underwriting cycle? How can actuaries help insurers and reinsurers manage through the cycle? How has the cycle distorted our estimates? And, what can we, as actuaries, do better going forward? This session will review how well actuaries have estimated losses during the high and low points of the past underwriting cycles. Then, it will discuss how a business plan can be made to accommodate the cycle utilizing strategies to help grow profitably through the cycle. This session will give you practical ideas to use as a basis for evaluating your own situation.
