Statements of Actuarial Opinion at Year-End 2016
Aaron Hillebrandt February 02, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, Apex Webinar
On January 27, 2017, Pinnacle’s Managing Principal Joe Herbers and I co-presented January’s APEX webinar, “Statements of Actuarial Opinion at Year-End 2016.” We discussed topics ranging from Statement of Actuarial Opinion (SAO) best practices to what is changing for year-end 2016 SAOs. Required changes for SAOs that are under the regulation of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), may be found in the Official NAIC Annual Statement Instructions. For year-end 2016, the changes are not significant and focus on clarification of reporting requirements.
Disruptive Medical Technology is Changing Lives (Including Mine)
Rob Walling January 25, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, General
We live in truly amazing times. Technological advances seem to be changing every aspect of our lives. During the past several years, we have witnessed numerous technological developments that were once limited  to science fiction: 3-D-printed ears with built-in hearing aids, plastic exoskeletons for people suffering from paralysis, inexpensive prosthetic arms, and nanotechnology to treat various types of cancer, just to name a few. Within the next couple of years, I hope to personally participate in one of these amazing breakthroughs: a treatment for one of the most common forms of muscular dystrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, or CMT.

The Value of University Partnerships
Erich Brandt January 18, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, Community Involvement
The strategic plan of the Casualty Actuarial Society includes a directive to “Develop strong relationships with academics and increase awareness among academics of the CAS career path.” Recognizing there are currently just over 3,000 four-year degree-granting institutions in the United States, a question arises as to how far this outreach extends. With this in mind, I’ve gone back to my roots and visited the two academic institutions that have most impacted my life.

Multiple Authors January 11, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, Apex Webinar
Just before the holidays we presented an APEX webinar on autonomous vehicles and their impact on the insurance industry. We would like to thank everyone who was able to participate. We discussed a wide array of topics ranging from platoon formations to legislative actions. We would now like to respond to some of the participant questions we received and share the results from our last polling question.

Celebrating and Appreciating an Outstanding Year

Here We Grow Again

Pinnacle’s growth has been spectacular during the past 12 months. We recently hired two highly-experienced credentialed actuaries, Linda Brobeck in San Francisco and Terrence Wright in Atlanta. Two of our Actuarial Analysts, Daniel Teuma and Nick Alicea, were conferred with the Associate of the Casualty Actuarial Society (ACAS) credential at the November 2016 CAS Annual Meeting. Pinnacle currently counts 28 credentialed actuaries among our staff. At the start of 2016 we had 20, and in 2003, when Pinnacle was founded, we had 10.
