The State of Pet Insurance
Multiple July 15, 2020 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, News
One of the interesting trends during the COVID-19 quarantine was the dramatic increase in pet adoptions. Furry, four-legged family members require financial investment in their daily care. Typically, the costs of food, toys and grooming are well understood by first-time pet owners. Owners may be less aware, however, of veterinary expenses and liability claims that can costs thousands of dollars. They should understand these often unforeseen and potentially costly pet expenses to understand how risk can be mitigated through pet insurance. 
Flexibility in the Process
Multiple July 13, 2020 Posted in: Blog Posts, News

Pinnacle University (Pinnacle U) is a complex program to pull off. Designing, planning and executing an event like Pinnacle U, usually requires a lot of flexibility in the process. This year, however, required a higher level of flexibility than we might have ever expected. Pinnacle U is an immersive, in-person symposium at which students, professionals, panelists and participants meet and spend the day discovering and debating important actuarial issues of the day. 

Navigating COVID-19 as an Actuarial College Student
Michael Mosley June 30, 2020 Posted in: Blog Posts, General
I will be a senior at Indiana University (IU) next year. I am double majoring in accounting and finance, with minors in economics and mathematics. I will also serve as the vice president of IU’s Actuarial Club next year, and I currently serve on the Kelley School of Business Equity and Inclusion Committee. The COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial impact on my summer plans, as I am sure it did for every single person around the world. What stood out about the entire situation was how quickly everything moved. There was seemingly new information every single day, and the majority of it wasn’t good. Everyone at IU went on spring break, and two days later we were notified that classes for the remainder of the semester would be conducted online.

Model Implementation—Begin With the End in Mind
Greg Frankowiak June 17, 2020 Posted in: Blog Posts, Predictive Analytics
Last year I wrote about a concept called the Modeling Lifecycle (Modeling Lifecycle). In that blog, I spent time addressing the many steps that are necessary for a predictive modeling project to be a success. Obviously, one of those critical steps is actual implementation of the model itself. Without that, you only have a fancy formula that doesn’t do much of anything for you. While insurers continue to devote more and more time and resources to predictive analytics, it would also benefit them to make sure they are devoting sufficient attention to model implementation.
