Pinnacle was retained by an insurance company specializing in catastrophic risk to identify and test alternative sources of risk financing capacity including traditional reinsurance and catastrophe bonds. In order to complete the project, Pinnacle designed a dynamic financial model to determine the cost/benefit of alternate risk financing strategies.
Minnesota Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses
The Insurance Federation of Minnesota retained Pinnacle in 2006 to conduct an independent actuarial study to determine the possible cost implications of changing Minnesota’s current no-fault law. The scenarios were:
New Jersey Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses
Save Choices for New Jersey Drivers (SCNJD), an ad-hoc coalition of insurers, trade and business associations asked Pinnacle to determine how proposed legislation would affect drivers.
The New Jersey Auto Cost Reduction Act eliminated the judicial requirement that permanent injuries that do not meet the other eligibility criteria for tort claims in no fault cases must have a “serious impact” on the claimant’s life. Pinnacle evaluated the affect of eliminating this requirement and determined the law would “significantly increase “losses eligible for tort recovery. Hence, Bodily Injury (BI) Liability and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM) costs and premiums would increase for drivers selecting the verbal threshold.
On June 14, 2005, two years after Pinnacle conducted its analysis, the New Jersey Supreme Court concluded does not imply a "serious impact" requirement for those seeking damages for non-economic losses (Octavio Serrano v. Jacqueline Serrano, et al. (A-99-03) and DiProspero v. Penn, et al., (A-66-03). As a result, injured claimants may seek recompense from the at-fault party for losses such as pain and suffering. SCNJD hired Pinnacle again to update the analysis based upon the later Insurance Research Council (IRC) data, which became available subsequent to the release of its 2003 report.
