A special webinar on the increasingly important topic of enterprise risk management in the context of the Latin American insurance market is set for 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, June 28.
According to a release, the webinar is being held in place of an in-person presentation and market briefing that had been scheduled for Miami on the same date. That event has been moved to an online venue.
As insurance penetration grows and investment returns slow, comprehensive risk management becomes a larger issue for insurers and to regulators in Latin America and worldwide. The panel will discuss how rating organizations and companies are approaching the issue and how it is leading to better understanding of an organization's risks, and ultimately, its financial strength. Some of the topics will include insurers' approaches to the use of modeling, metrics and the various systems being developed to give companies more holistic views of their overall exposures.
The company said that the initial list of speakers for the one- hour discussion on enterprise risk management includes:
-Matthew Mosher, FCAS, MAAA, Senior Vice President and head of A.M. Best's rating division;
-Dr. Joseph A. Milan, Ph.D., ARM, Principal, JA Milan & Associates, LLC, who advises organizations on risk management issues; and
-Marcela Abraham, Towers Watson, an actuary specializing in risk and consulting services for the Latin American insurance market.
The webinar is free. Registered attendees can submit questions in advance and during the event. Journalists from regional and global insurance publications will also participate in the questioning.
A.M. Best Company is an insurance rating and information source.
