This is the premier insurance industry conference in Florida covering a wide range of cutting-edge topics of interest to insurance executives. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear remarks from Florida Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier.

Among the other presentations, the Summit program will include:

  • Reinsurance Market Update, panel presentation moderated by Andy Marcell, President of Aon Benfield. Panelists from the reinsurance market will offer diverse perspectives on the issues impacting the 2018 reinsurance and insurance market covering multiple lines of business beyond property. Panelists will also address different ways to match risk with capital from traditional and alternative markets.
  • The Rising Flood Insurance Market, presented by Nancy Watkins from Milliman. The recent advancements in analytics, coupled with new legislation, capacity in the property insurance market, and increased consumer demand, present exciting opportunities for private flood insurance. Milliman will discuss these changes and provide an update on the National Flood Insurance Program, the largest writer of flood in the United States. Milliman will also demonstrate how private companies can evaluate the feasibility of offering flood insurance, and present the pros and cons of various flood pricing structures used in the private market.
  • The Analytical Journey – Applying Data to Analytics from a Commercial Risk Standpoint, presented by Louis Bode of Merlinos & Associates. The last decade has seen many insurance carriers implement data strategies across their policy environment. The analytical journey has touched on claims, underwriting, and marketing. At this point and time in developing business strategy, a key question is: Where could we make the best impact using data? Understanding where to apply analytics is an important step to determine the correct usage case for data. Looking forward, the future of blending data from both internal and external sources comes together to show what is possible over the next five years if we are able to tie together data with true business intelligence.
  • Florida Legislative and Political Update, presented by Katie Webb from Colodny Fass. This presentation will be very timely as the 2018 Florida legislative session ends just 10 days prior to the Summit. This presentation will provide an update on the dynamic Florida political landscape in a key election year, and you will hear the latest on what happened legislatively on Assignment of Benefits, workers’ compensation, efforts to repeal Personal Injury Protection (PIP) auto insurance, and other issues that impact the insurance industry in Florida.Registration is free-of-charge to management of insurers, reinsurers, and managing general agents.
