July Apex Discussion Series - Causes of Recent Adverse Development

Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Central)

Registration is open for our July APEX Webinar.

Join Consulting Actuaries Erich Brandt and Greg Fears as they analyze and discuss groups who have had adverse loss development, as well as how the industry performed this past year compared to the last several years. To further enhance this study, Mr. Brandt and Mr. Fears have teamed up with Professor Kevin Ahlgrim from Illinois State University to analyze risk of material adverse deviation and thresholds as observed in the past few years’ statements of actuarial opinion.

We encourage interaction with our presenters; please feel free to submit questions before the webinar to: apexsupport@pinnacleactuaries.com. We will address them during the presentation as time allows. You will also have the ability to submit questions in "real-time" during the session.

This webinar may qualify for up to 1 hour of continuing education.
