About

The numbers speak for themselves: run-off liabilities are estimated at nearly $300 billion and may soon rise to $600 billion. With more and more insurers making the decision to discontinue business using run-off as their exit strategy, failure to grasp the attendant challenges can mean disaster for an insurer or run-off company. To succeed in this new era, you need the most up-to-date information on innovative approaches and strategies.

For the past three years, over 250 high-level run-off executives and legal professionals from nine countries have gathered to network and learn from an outstanding faculty of industry leaders. In this publication, you will receive practical guidance on:

  • Tactics for managing the run-off process
  • Strategies to ensure successful collections
  • Protecting your interests when handling reinsurance claims
  • The latest solvent schemes of arrangement in the U.S. and around the world
  • Considerations and strategies for commuting claims
  • Determining what the long range goal of the run-off should be
