Reinsurance Collateral

Adapting Insurance and Reinsurance Best Practices to New Regulatory Realities

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

About

Modifications to your corporate strategy to account for the NAIC collateral requirement rule changes are a necessity to secure future financial strength and profitability.

The need to have a working knowledge of the mechanics behind the new collateral system is essential for all who work with foreign reinsurers. The new paradigm will impact all aspects of the insurance/reinsurance industry, from underwriting to claims to treasury and overall corporate financial strength.

American Conference Institute has developed the Reinsurance Collateral publication where distinguished faculty exchanges ideas regarding the mechanics of the various expected changes to the collateral system, including how a new rating system will reflect future financial strength of reinsurers and how a new collateral system will impact the ratings of primary insurers. Speakers will share new approaches for adapting your practices to account for changes in risk profile, as well as discuss the consequences of buying less reinsurance.

You will benefit from discussions with:

  • Regulators will address the full spectrum of views on how this change will impact your business
  • Senior reinsurance execs will give you an insider’s view on how they are getting ready to adjust their corporate strategies to maximize business opportunities resulting from the new collateral system
  • Executives from insurance companies, from whom you will learn how underwriting standards will be reshaped in the new reinsurance environment
  • Industry leaders will shed light on their views on the pros and cons of the new collateral system and its impact on primary insurers, reinsurers, and domestic insurance customers
