CS-8 - Professionalism: Skit Based Session, Based on New Aon Skits

CAS members are required to invest three CE hours a year to review professionalism topics. One reason is that we all have times in our career where there is pressure to cut a corner or compromise our principles for sake of expediency, to avoid embarrassment, or due to other pressures. One way to prepare for these challenges is to see others in a similar situation and to learn from their experience and mistakes. In this session, skits are presented in which an actuary had pressure to compromise on our professional principles. In addition to viewing the skits, we will present the relevant precepts from the code of conduct and discuss insights and practical challenges that arise in their implementation. Come prepared to interact with the speakers and the audience!

CS-6 - CAS Race and Insurance Pricing Research - Defining Discrimination and Quantifying Disparate Impact in Insurance

As the insurance industry focuses attention on potential racial bias across all practice areas, CAS actuaries are being called to understand, and asses the issues and develop solutions. This session will provide an overview of two new research briefs commissioned as part of the Casualty Actuarial Society's Approach to Race and Insurance Pricing - Defining Discrimination in Insurance and Methods for Quantifying Disparate Impact in Insurance. Kuda Chibanda will present key terminology being used in the industry debate on race and insurance, such as protected class, fair and unfair discrimination, proxy discrimination and disparate impact, and explain the implications of conflicting definitions of these terms. Next, Roosevelt Mosely will dive into the issue of disparate impact and compare several potential statistical methods that actuaries can apply to measure fairness in the context of insurance rating.

CS-40 - Understanding the Big Picture: What are the Downstream Impacts of YOUR Analysis or Model?

In this session, we will discuss how the work of a single Actuary or team of Actuaries impacts (or could impact) other functional areas within an insurance company. We will examine these downstream impacts through the lens of the Pricing, Reserving and Capital Modeling Actuary and will touch on the impacts across these functional areas as well as other functional areas including Underwriting, Risk Management, Finance and Asset Management. Throughout this session, the audience will receive tips on how they can break down functional silos and enhance cross-functional collaboration through improved inter-disciplinary communication and the creation of analyses / models which reflect a more holistic understanding of the impacts of their work across the firm.

CS-37 - The Road to Vehicle Automation from an Insurance Perspective

IIHS-HLDI researchers have recently completed groundbreaking research that significantly expands our understanding of the impact of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and driving automation on highway safety and auto insurance. Currently, the most advanced vehicles for sale in the US have Level 2 automation, but the effect on claim frequency is mixed for these systems. The impact of these systems on repair costs and collision claim severities is complex. The enabling sensors can be expensive when damaged because in addition to being replaced, they often need to be recalibrated. However, a deep look at the affected claims has revealed that at least some of the changes in claim severities are due to mean shifting related to the operational speeds of the systems. Finally, the variability in effectiveness of advanced driver assistance systems by vehicle age, driver age, mileage, and registered vehicle density will be examined.
