Event information

Casualty Actuarial Society’s Envisioned Future (from the CAS Strategic Plan)

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.

CAS Continuing Education Credit

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 can 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. For further information regarding the CAS Continuing Education Policy please visit the CAS web site.

This virtual event may qualify for up to 13.8* CE Credits for CAS members.

*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 Casualty Actuarial Society.

The Reinsurance Tug of War

The reinsurance industry is experiencing a tug of war today across a plethora of areas….

  • There is the “Great Resignation” but still need to build our talent pool
  • The 5 year frequency of large losses drove reinsurers to hold / reduce capacity but yet Reinsurance Capital is at an All Time High
  • Retro pricing approached a cyclical high impacting reinsurer cost of capital but investors maintained capital levels from a year ago
  • Social Inflation and other trends are growing but reserves have not yet met these projected changes

This session will explore the push and pull of current and future market conditions.
