March APEX Webinar - Reinsurance 101 in 2021

Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Central)

Registration is now open for the Pinnacle APEX Webinar, Reinsurance 101 in 2021.

This APEX webinar will cover basic reinsurance topics and considerations. Join Art Randolph, Nick Alicea, Erick Mortenson and Travis Murnan as they walk through a common scenario of a corporate entity’s excess insurance decision: What to retain and how much to transfer? What will be the resulting impact on excess carriers perception of aggregate risk assumed and their treaty reinsurance contracts? The presenters will also discuss typical reinsurance structures, pricing and current events in the reinsurance market.

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 one hour of continuing education.
