Pollution Liability Insurance

Underwriting and Claims Strategies for Managing Risk and Minimizing Liability

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

About

As federal and state regulators have increasingly instituted more stringent environmental regulations, many industries are finding themselves subject to greater environmental liability and exposures to financial loss. As more companies conclude that environmental liability insurance is necessary to protect themselves, the insurance industry has been rapidly evolving to keep pace with policyholders’ increasing appetite for the products and their changing needs.

Products in this area are greatly varied – and are continuing to change. And, more insurers are getting into the game. It’s therefore imperative that you ensure that you have the tools you need to evaluate the competition, properly assess, price and mitigate risk, and calculate your profitability in this ever-changing area.

That’s why the American Conference Institute developed this publication from this valuable industry forum, where brokers, underwriters, carriers and others in the industry can get critical information for staying ahead of the curve.
