Underwriting in an Inflationary Environment

As inflation has reared its ugly head for the first time in decades, underwriters are challenged to manage the impact to growth and profitability for both the short and long term.  This session will explore the impacts that inflation is having across different lines of insurance and how underwriters are managing both the changes to exposure valuations and loss costs.

Automated Underwriting
Stephen Goris, VP Analytics, BizXcel

In this session, you will gain an understanding of what “Automated Underwriting” means, general guidelines for implementation, the importance of communicating a vision, developing a roadmap with well-defined goals, and how the insurance industry is using automation to gain efficiencies throughout the Underwriting Journey. The ability to elevate the Underwriting experience, better assess risk, deliver innovation, and enhance efficiencies throughout the insurance value-chain utilizing the power of automation will continue to be of paramount importance.


Anytime Risk Management
Jeff Hendershot, Loss Control Engineering Director, Pennsylvania Lumbermans

Loss/Risk Control surveys play a critical role in helping insurance underwriters evaluate and price risk. Many commercial insurance companies were hindered in performing physical surveys at customers sites during the pandemic. Self-survey tools bring a solution to this problem. This presentation will look at how self-surveys can work, results from tested processes, and where the future of these programs is headed.
