IMPLICATIONS OF REVIVER STATUTES FOR CASUALTY MARKETS
July 29, 2020  12:00 Noon – 1.00 p.m. ♦ Powered by Zoom

This latest webinar will be presented by Robert W. DiUbaldo, a Shareholder of the firm of Carlton Fields P.A., and who is an acknowledged expert in this area. He will update us on the absolute current situation in this rapidly developing area.

The emergence in recent years of so-called “reviver statutes” reopens and extends the period under which claims alleging sexual abuse, molestation or assault may be brought against perpetrators and the institutions or entities that employed, supervised, retained or harbored them.  As a result of certain states passing reviver legislation, thousands of claims previously barred by statutes of limitations have now been resurrected against insured entities and/or individuals.  The surge of previously time-barred tort claims presents significant new exposure for various classes of insureds and long-expired insurance policies and reinsurance agreements.

These developments are of particular interest to insurers/reinsurers/financial entities including those with legacy long-tail liabilities.  The webinar should be of particular interest to claims, legal, actuarial, underwriting and financial professionals.

LUNCH & LEARN: ALL ABOUT REPUTATION RISK EXPOSURES (Webinar Registration)

January 8, 2020 – Mayer Brown, NYC

“In a market system based on trust, reputation has a significant economic value” noted former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan in 2008. Using that framework, Reputation Value is therefore the accumulated economic benefits of stakeholders’ expectations, and Reputation Risk is the peril of economic harm from stakeholders’ disappointment and anger amplified by social media.

To address these risks, parametric risk transfer solutions, quantification of reputation value and volatility was necessary to be built from scratch. Today we have about 18 years of data comprising synthetic measures of reputational value informed by behavioral economics. Hundreds of captive insurance companies, and insurers led by Tokio Marine Kiln use Steel City Re metrics as the basis of underwriting.

Peter Gerken, a Co-Founder of Steel City Re, a Managing General Agency, will discuss all the elements of reputation as well as the marketplace at this time on the buy and sell side. Further, he will outline the opportunity for participants to consider addressing intangible asset risks and being part of this expanding marketplace.
