The CAS will be recognized globally as the premier organization in advancing the practice and application of casualty actuarial science and educating professionals in general insurance, including property-casualty and similar risk exposure.

Continuing Education Credits

The CAS Continuing Education Policy applies to all ACAS and FCAS members who provide actuarial services. Actuarial services are defined in the CAS Code of Professional Conduct as “professional services provided to a Principal by an individual acting in the capacity of an actuary. Such services include the rendering of advice, recommendations, findings or opinions based upon actuarial considerations.”

Members who are, or could be, subject to the continuing education requirements of a national actuarial organization may meet the requirements of the CAS Continuing Education Policy by satisfying the continuing education requirements established by a national actuarial organization recognized by the Policy.

This activity may qualify for up to 6* CE credits for CAS members. Participants should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. CAS members earn 1 CE credit per 50 minutes of educational session time, not to include breaks or lunch.

*Note: The amount of CE credit that can be earned for participating in this activity must be assessed by the individual attendee. It also may be different for individuals who are subject to the requirements of organizations other than the American Academy of Actuaries.

Sessions

10:00 – 11:15 AM, ET

Professionalism – Deep Dive on Code of Conduct

When is the last time you read the Code of Professional Conduct? Now you don't have to. We will take you through it Precept by Precept, in a fun, interactive session. The Code of Conduct is a “fixed star” – a relatively unchanging, simple set of fundamentals. Many of the precepts are applicable in much of our day-to-day work as actuaries. Behaving “professionally” is not always a black-and-white exercise – we operate in many grey areas, so its good to discuss in a group how these precepts apply in realistic situations.

Speaker:
Patricia Teufel, University of Connecticut
Ronald Kozlowski, RTK Actuarial & Professional Services

11:30 AM – 12:45 PM, ET

Race and Insurance Pricing: Industry Developments and CAS Research                                          Download Presentation

This session will provide an overview of key developments in the ongoing insurance industry dialogue around potential racial bias in insurance practices. Learn about recent state regulatory and legislative changes that could have an impact on insurers across the country. Stay for key learnings from four research papers published as part of the CAS approach to Race and Insurance Pricing, covering terminology, historical context, and potential solutions. These papers provide important foundational information for actuaries to consider as the insurance industry works to understand, identify, measure and address potential racial bias in insurance pricing.

Speakers:
Mallika Bender, Casualty Actuarial Society
Kathleen Hurta, Allstate Insurance Company
Susan Kent, Ohio Mutual Insurance Group

1:45 – 3:00 PM, ET

The Price is Right: An Introduction to Pricing Novel Products and Competitive Analysis               Download Presentation

Whether you are pricing something that is new to you or new to the entire industry, what strategies and methods should you keep in mind when developing new rates and rating plans? In this session, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different pricing methodologies that can be leveraged when developing new products. We will also discuss ways in which competitive analyses and other data can be leveraged during the pricing process.

Speakers:
Eric Krafcheck, Milliman
Katherine Pipkorn, Milliman

3:15 – 4:30 PM, ET

Dislocation Analysis: Segment Detection of Disrupted Rates                                                             Download Presentation

Control of rate changes is particularly challenging for complex insurance products. Multiple risks are covered by these contracts, and each risk requires its own specific modeling. When all these risks are combined and entangled, the cumulative effect may lead to undesired disruptive rate changes.

One of Dislocation Analysis objectives is to detect the portfolio's segments which are most impacted by the new proposed premium: such information is key as it provides guidance for rating adjustments. Automated modeling can greatly improve the accuracy and speed of the overall process. In this presentation it will be shown how, starting from a global analysis of the rate changes, the modeler can quickly detect the sources of the dislocation and obtain guidance for the right set of adjustment leading to a more desired rating structure.

Furthermore, we will see how this proposed automated modeling can be also applied to identify segments of the portfolio whose loss ratios will significantly be increased by the new rate change.

Mattia Casotto, Akur8
Robert Zolla, Milliman
