12:30pm CDT WS-4: Loss Reserving with R Brian Fannin, Casualty Actuarial Society show more Description This workshop will provide instructions to generate loss reserve estimates using R. We will talk through basic data manipulation, and exploratory data analysis. We will then fit several predictive models to aggregate triangles and talk through selection of an appropriate model. We will project estimates of ultimate loss and conclude with a discussion about using individual claims in reserving. Attendees should have a basic understanding of R. They should have R installed and be able to install new packages. The workshop will focus on the tidyverse suite of packages, particularly ggplot2 and dplyr. The instructor cannot provide technical support. Attendees with any technical/installation concerns are encouraged to familiarize themselves with RStudio Cloud.

By using predictive modeling techniques to develop objective algorithms for these reserves, reserving triangles can be re-built to be much more reliable and transparent (think Berquist-Sherman, but with a scalpel instead of a chainsaw). While the approach makes use of individual claim development models, framing the results back into triangles provides demonstration of the resulting algorithm’s effectiveness and stability. Benefits of using these algorithmic reserves extend not only to creating estimates of total reserve need, but to actuarial pricing work as well. While the focus of this half-day workshop will be on the creation and use of Actuarial Case Reserves, we will also discuss the concept of Policy-Level IBNR reserves as an additional triangle layer, reflecting estimated not-yet-reported claims. No prior predictive modeling experience is necessary, but there will be two hours of pre-work to maximize the effectiveness of time spent during the workshop itself. Users will be provided access to temporary Azure workstations for a week prior to the workshop until a week after the workshop so that they can continue to explore these concepts with the sample data and tools provided.

10:00am CDT ST-4: How to Hybrid Tina Gwilliam, WTW; Simon Day, AEGIS Insurance Services; Kristen Bessette, QBE North America show more Description A Gallop poll indicated that 53% of companies will use a hybrid work approach in 2022 and beyond, while 24% expect to be exclusively remote and 23% exclusively on-site. How are insurers stacking up and what does that mean for reserving teams? During this panel discussion you’ll hear from industry peers about their specific approaches – both via the moderated panel discussion and audience polls, with a focus on technology as an enabler. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 10:00AM - 11:15AM CDT Location Majestic G Speakers Tina Gwilliam WTW Simon Day AEGIS Insurance Services Kristen Bessette QBE North America LOB-3: Modern Strategies to Handle Legacy Claims Travis Grulkowski, Milliman; Rita Zona, Enstar Insurance Group show more Description Latent exposures continue to give rise to claim activity, and legacy claims such as asbestos, black lung, glyphosate, talc, sexual misconduct, opioid usage, amongst others still burden the industry. Corporations are looking to transfer these legacy risks to mitigate the unknown and provide balance sheet stability. On the other side of the market, there are many new and established entrants ready to acquire runoff liabilities to employ improved claims management strategies and creative deal structures that can lead to long-term investment gains. Legacy claim transactions often prove to be valuable for both parties. Quantification of latent liabilities requires non-standard actuarial methods and experts who can interpret underlying characteristics of the book. Sellers typically do not possess this specialized expertise or latent claims are only a small portion of the overall balance sheet liabilities. Meanwhile, some acquirers solely handle run-off liabilities or have experts who work with these types of claims every day. This creates an advantageous partnership that motivates both sides to work towards a mutually beneficial transaction. The legacy markets are currently extremely active due to the: • Interest rate environment • Number of new buyers entering market • Large corporates looking for legacy risk resolutions Dealing with latent liabilities can sometimes be a daunting task and many don’t know where to start. The goal of this session is to mitigate those concerns by providing important background on this ever-growing market, including the types of major players, primary considerations before approaching a transaction, and a brief overview of several of the solutions available for companies to more effectively manage or transfer their legacy exposures. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 10:00AM - 11:15AM CDT Location Majestic H Speakers Travis Grulkowski Milliman Rita Zona Enstar Insurance Group RM-3: Reserving Methodologies to Account for Inflation Ashley Wohler, WTW; Jonathan Sappington, WTW show more Description The presentation will discuss recent economic drivers of inflation, including major inflation indices. Along with this, we will discuss key considerations when estimating the relationship between economic inflation and claims inflation, discussing inflation series, coverages, limits, and attachments. Additionally, we will discuss how to amend traditional methods to adjust for historic and future claims inflation, both deterministically and stochastically and use the Fischer-Lange Method to reflect specific inflation scenarios. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 10:00AM - 11:15AM CDT Location Majestic D Speakers Ashley Wohler WTW Jonathan Sappington WTW PD-4: The Actuary as an Expert Witness Robert Walling, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.; Bob Miccolis (Virtual Speaker), Miccolis Consulting LLC show more Description One of the most challenging roles an actuary can take on is that of an expert witness. The level of precision required and the contentious nature of most hearings and trials increase the scrutiny of the actuarial work product and of the oral testimony. This session will discuss the variety of types of expert witness, the phases of a trial, and provide some advice for actuaries in expert witness situations. These tips are based on professional guidance and years of experience as experts. This session will have one virtual speaker. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 10:00AM - 11:15AM CDT Location Majestic F Speakers Robert Walling Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc. Bob Miccolis (Virtual Speaker) Miccolis Consulting LLC LOB-6: The Road to Vehicle Automation from an Insurance Perspective Kay Wakeman, IIHS-HLDI; Matthew Moore, Highway Loss Data Institute show more Description IIHS-HLDI researchers have recently completed groundbreaking research that significantly expands our understanding of the impact of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and driving automation on highway safety and auto insurance. Currently, the most advanced vehicles for sale in the US have Level 2 automation, but the effect on claim frequency is mixed for these systems. The impact of these systems on repair costs and collision claim severities is complex. The enabling sensors can be expensive when damaged becasuse in addition to being replaced, they often need to be recalibrated. However, a deep look at the affected claims has revealed that at least some of the changes in claim severities are due to mean shifting related to the operational speeds of the systems. Finally, the variability in effectiveness of advanced driver assistance systems by vehicle age, driver age, mileage, and registered vehicle density will be examined. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 10:00AM - 11:15AM CDT Location Majestic ABC Speakers Kay Wakeman IIHS-HLDI Matthew Moore Highway Loss Data Institute LOB-7: Unpacking Title Insurance - Past, Present … and What's Next? Arthur Randolph, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.; Chris Schubert, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.; Matthew Meade, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc. show more Description The title insurance market, a large component of the property and casualty market, grew at unprecedented levels in 2020 and 2021. And, although homeowners are required to secure title insurance as a requisite to home purchase, few understand title insurance or its policy provisions. Pinnacle Principal and Consulting Actuary Art Randolph, Consulting Actuary Chris Schubert and Associate Actuary Matt Meade will explore the historical financial results of the industry and investigate correlations between title underwriting experience and broad economic metrics. The session will also consider how the title industry may be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, inflation and InsurTech competitors.

11:45am CDT RM-1: Can’t Stand the Heat: Climate Change, Measuring Physical Risk and Financial Disclosures Steven Jackson, American Academy of Actuaries; Stephen Kolk (Virtual Speaker), Kolkulations LLC; Peter Ott (Virtual Speaker), Swiss Re show more Description With climate risk rising and attention to climate risk by policymakers, regulators and companies rising even faster, this panel will examine risk management issues related to climate change from three angles: First, we will examine the measurement of the changing risk, exemplified by the Actuaries Climate Index and the Actuaries Climate Risk Index measures of climate extremes. We will focus this discussion on changes being contemplated in these indices as the sponsoring actuarial associations move towards revised versions of both. Second, we will examine climate-related financial disclosures and the opportunities they present for enhancing risk management. We will also focus on ways in which the current generation of disclosures, built around the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework, might be improved. Finally, we will discuss both the measurement of risk and climate risk disclosures from the perspective of companies seeking to improve their risk management practices with respect to climate change. This session will have two virtual speakers.

Julie Lederer Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance Margaret Tiller Sherwood Tiller Consulting Group, Inc. AR-1: Disrupting the Actuarial Function? Kevin Donnelly, United Healthcare; Mark Shapland, Auto Club Group show more Description Business news headlines proclaim how new breeds of companies, e.g., Uber and AirBnB, have been disrupting industries, e.g., transportation and hospitality, that have been around for decades. The easy path for actuaries is to just remain steadfast in the belief that this type of disruption is not possible for the actuarial function, just like executives in the transportation and hospitality industries did in the early days of these startups, but is it the right path? Actuaries have already been under pressure to reduce costs while increasing productivity, so in this session we will explore ways actuaries can use current models to increase productivity and add more value. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 11:45AM - 1:00PM CDT Location Majestic G Speakers Kevin Donnelly United Healthcare Mark Shapland Auto Club Group ST-5: IFRS 17: What's the Punchline?

ST-3: Beyond Excel: A Critical Examination of the Actuarial Toolkit Brian Fannin, Casualty Actuarial Society show more Description It is well known in the insurance industry that Microsoft Excel is wildly popular amongst actuaries. However, its widespread usage is difficult to explain on the basis of cost, analytic feature set, or performance; spreadsheets are outclassed on one or more of those metrics by many different tools. Instead, Excel is often chosen as the result of operational decisions meant to accommodate non-actuarial stakeholders. When seen in this light, it’s possible for an organization to think critically about alternate solutions. We explore several options which enable actuaries to construct more powerful, informative models, while preserving the user experience for other constituencies. Presentation will reference results from the First Annual CAS Actuarial Technology Survey, which had over 1,200 respondents provide insight into their preferred technology tools, including self-reported proficiency levels, technology barriers, preferred techniques, and areas of improvement. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 2:00PM - 3:15PM CDT Location Majestic D Speakers Brian Fannin Casualty Actuarial Society FR-1: Emerging Climate Change Regulations and Disclosures Maggie Brickner, PwC; Hannah Clouser, PwC show more Description Regulation on climate related reporting is rapidly developing both within the US and globally. During this session, we will discuss upcoming requirements that life insurers may be subject to, and provide examples of relevant global regulation. While the focus will be on US regulation, such as the guidance from the NYDFS on managing financial risk, NAIC climate risk disclosure survey, and proposed SEC guidance, this session will also provide examples of regulation in mainland Europe and the United Kingdom, where regulation around climate disclosures is more mature and may provide an example of what is to come. The session will also provide examples of ways to respond to regulation, discuss current climate disclosure frameworks such as Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), cover the growing expectation of climate disclosure from investors, and consider where the future of climate regulation may be heading. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 2:00PM - 3:15PM CDT Location Washington Speakers Maggie Brickner PwC Hannah Clouser PwC LOB-2: Florida Homeowners: A Market in Crisis Klayton Southwood, WTW; Trevar Withers, WTW; Melissa Shelley show more Description The Florida homeowners market is in a state of crisis after several years of worsening results. 2021 and 2022 have seen multiple insolvencies, skyrocketing rate levels and extraordinary growth in Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, the insurer of last report. This session will discuss the history of this complex and dynamic market, including reasons for the unique nature of insurers serving the market, and trends & events that have shaped the market such as: • Steady population and exposure growth • Litigation trends • Assignment of Benefits (AOB) which has impacted Florida much more than other states • The Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund • Growth of Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (the insurer of last resort). This session will also discuss the solutions being proposed to address the current issues and reserving considerations. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 2:00PM - 3:15PM CDT Location Majestic G Speakers Klayton Southwood WTW Trevar Withers WTW Melissa Shelley AR-3: Same Dog, New Tricks: A New Reserving Method Tad Womack, Oliver Wyman Actuarial Consulting; Jose Joaquin Camara, Oliver Wyman Actuarial Consulting show more Description This session will dive into a new reserving method for Workers’ Compensation. Existing techniques could be improved upon by relating estimated unpaid liabilities to the current closure rate position rather than being based on time/maturity. The ability to secure transaction-level payment and case reserve files, coupled with the ability to assemble summarized financial and claim count values using a programming language instead of a spreadsheet package, allows triangles to be created with closure rate on one axis vs months of development/maturity. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 2:00PM - 3:15PM CDT Location Majestic ABC Speakers Tad Womack Oliver Wyman Actuarial Consulting Jose Joaquin Camara Oliver Wyman Actuarial Consulting HWM-4: Workers' Compensation - Market Update Brett King (Virtual Speaker), New York Compensation Insurance Rating Board; Lisa Walsh (Virtual Speaker), SwissRe show more Description This session will provide a current view of the US workers compensation market from various perspectives.

Actuaries will learn how it can be done, why wave methods are important and how actuaries can visualize and explain them. Emphasis will be placed on the visualization and explanation, since our literature lacks even basic descriptions of waves. The reserving topic of inflationary cycles is advanced, but the presentation will assume that attendees are unfamiliar with wave methods. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 3:45PM - 5:00PM CDT Location Majestic D Speakers James Ely Convolved, Inc IAI-2: Parametric Insurance for Severe Convective Storm John Qiang Su (Virtual Speaker), Arbol show more Description Severe Convective Storm (SCS) has become increasingly stronger in recent years in the U.S. The main perils include flooding, hail, tornado, and derecho. Historically while flooding got a lot of attention in the insurance community, models and products for other perils have been lacking. In this session we will take a deep dive into SCS, including the meteorological knowledge and loss history. Then discuss how to improve data and modeling for hail, tornado and derecho to design parametric insurance programs to better manage the associated risk.

The architecture explored in the presentation will be Long Short Term Memory (LSTM), a form of deep learning that finds patterns in temporal data. The results using the LSTM architecture are compared to the results of the chain ladder method. The illustrations and examples will make this presentation useful to actuaries who want to understand deep learning and how it could apply to reserving. Time Tuesday, Sep 20 3:45PM - 5:00PM CDT Location Washington Speakers Lahiru Somaratne University of Nebraska–Lincoln IAI-1: Using AI for Customer Management while Avoiding Bias Rob Bernard, PwC; Tara McCafferty, Slalom, LLC show more Description AI offers a variety of solutions and value drivers for insurance customer management, applying techniques such as computer vision, virtual agents or chat bots, and predictive models. These solutions create impact by accelerating claims processing, discovering opportunities to upsell or cross-sell customers, predicting attrition, and creating leverage for customer support teams. Applied responsibly and ethically, these technologies enable increased capacity in any organization, by relieving employees of menial tasks and focusing their time and effort on more complex customer needs. However, AI can sometimes exhibit bias toward protected groups, which can damage the reputation and legitimacy of the organization that employs it. There are, however, mitigation strategies to head off bias, starting with a solid, vetted internal governance process. We will present an example of such an internal governance process that can be employed by any firm of any size.

Our focus will be on professionalism aspects and responsibilities that are inherent to a professional peer review, and not "how to" checklists. CAS and AAA literature does not dive deep into this topic, and we are all left with the common situation of determining for ourselves whether or not we are meeting professional perceptions, guidelines, expectations, and our own comfort levels. We will have a couple of warm-up scenarios to get the juices flowing. From there, focus questions/topics might include: What qualifications should the Peer Reviewer meet? Who is the intended recipient? To what extent does the Principal benefit from the peer review? When should the Peer Reviewer also be signing the Report? To what extent can the actuary rely on the peer review? Does an informal discussion constitute a peer review? When something goes wrong, what is the Peer Reviewer responsible for? What complications or enhancements to professionalism issues have been brought about by the virtual work environment? Time Wednesday, Sep 21 7:00AM - 7:50AM CDT Location Majestic F Speakers John Wade CLRS Working Group RT-13: Understanding Reserving Through Behavioral Approaches George Levine, KPMG, LLP show more Description This roundtable discussion centers on the paper “A Behavioral Approach to Understanding Loss Reserves” for the CAS Committee on Reserving, Call For Papers, authored by Uri Korn. From the Abstract: “This paper takes a deep dive into historical loss reserves. Using Schedule P company filings, it is shown that reserves are very slow to react to emerging losses, much slower than the most accurate approach would dictate. There are other concerns besides for accuracy, such as stability and avoiding deficient reserves. But attempting to explain the discrepancy in this manner alone would require a level of risk aversion that is unrealistic. Instead, it is shown that the corporate environment causes increased conservatism, and when coupled with narrow framing is able to explain company practice.” With the increasing focus on Bias with Continuing Education, this is a great opportunity to merge actuarial and statistical concepts with bias considerations, which should lead to a lively interactive dialogue.

How common are these Nuclear Verdicts and how does the possibility of such an outcome influence the overall claims settlement process for Healthcare Professional Liability? Should we be concerned with Claim Frequency as much as Claim Severity? What other forces are influencing the overall cost of Healthcare Professional Liability in the current environment? Join us for a panel discussion on the current state of the Healthcare Professional Liability market and the associated reserving implications. Our three panelists will discuss the current state of the market from three distinct perspectives based on their own professional backgrounds - claims professional, actuary, (re)insurance broker. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 8:00AM - 9:15AM CDT Location Majestic F Speakers Stephen Koca Milliman Philip Reischman Alliant Insurance Services Robert Blasio Gallagher Bassett Specialty RT-10: New Development in the Sharing Economy with a Focus on RV Sharing Francois Morissette, S & F Actuarial Consultants; Charles Zhu, Capital Insurance Group show more Description The hosts will discuss a few new entrants in the Sharing Economy space.

Lise Hasegawa, Farmers Insurance Group; Dawn Fowle, EY show more Description In this session we'll discuss all types of communications around the Statement of Actuarial Opinion, both before and after it is signed. Start with internal discussions with groups such as pricing, underwriting, then be sure to include claims and reinsurance. The communication fun doesn't stop there! Be sure to make the most of your time with Company management and the Board of Directors.

Time Wednesday, Sep 21 9:45AM - 11:00AM CDT Location Majestic ABC Speakers Lise Hasegawa Farmers Insurance Group Dawn Fowle EY HWM-3: Medical Professional Liability Tort Reforms, Times They Are A-Changin' (Again!) Stephen Koca, Milliman; Leah Windt, Milliman show more Description The passage of AB 35 in California will have reverberations for years to come. This session will review historical tort reforms across the country along with the history of MICRA and how AB 35 came to be in California. We will discuss estimating the direct impacts of increasing non-economic damage caps and also potential indirect impacts from changing behaviors of parties to a claim of which the MPL reserving actuary should be cognizant. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 9:45AM - 11:00AM CDT Location Washington Speakers Stephen Koca Milliman Leah Windt Milliman AR-4: Smoothing Splines for Trend David Clark, Munich Re; Sinéad Cummins, Munich Re show more Description Traditionally, insurance loss trends have been estimated using log-linear regression fit to historical loss severities. This works well when inflation is constant, but it can be misleading if trends are changing due to things like social inflation or pandemic disruption. This session will present one technique – smoothing splines - for smoothing out historical data without requiring an assumption that trends do not change. We will outline the concept behind smoothing splines and offer practical examples showing their use on real data. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 9:45AM - 11:00AM CDT Location Majestic H Speakers David Clark Munich Re Sinéad Cummins Munich Re RM-4: When Enough is Enough: Leveraging Capital throughout the Life of a Captive Laura Maxwell, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.; Daniel Linton, Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc. show more Description Accurately assessing the adequacy of a company’s capital position is often more challenging than reserving and pricing exercises due to the complexity of underwriting, as well as asset, risk. This session will explore considerations in producing a capital adequacy analysis, including guidance from a number of Actuarial Standards of Practice. By considering risk from a holistic point a view, an actuary can determine when a company has sufficient capital to support its operations and, if it does, potential uses of free capital. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 9:45AM - 11:00AM CDT Location Majestic F Speakers Laura Maxwell Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc. Daniel Linton Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.
11:30am CDT CP-1: "Making Bootstrap Reserve Ranges More Realistic" and "Identifying Reserve Risk Based on Volatility in Triangles of Estimated Ultimate Losses" David Clark, Munich Re; Hang Ding; Yu Shi Feng, TransRe show more Description Prize Winning Loss Reserve Call Papers Making Bootstrap Reserve Ranges More Realistic Back testing suggests that bootstrapping approaches lead to reserve ranges that may be too narrow. To improve the current methods, we relax England and Verrall’s assumption that each cell in the incremental development triangle is independent by introducing a correlation structure in the resampling of the bootstrap. Back testing with Schedule P data suggests that this approach yields reserve ranges that are more reasonable. Identifying Reserve Risk Based on Volatility in Triangles of Estimated Ultimate Losses Building on work performed by Rehman, Klugman and Seigenthaler, the presentation explores measurement of reserve volatility using triangles of estimated ultimate losses instead of paid or incurred loss data; changes in estimated ultimates from evaluation to evaluation give insight into reserve variability. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 11:30AM - 12:45PM CDT Location Majestic H Speakers David Clark Munich Re Hang Ding Yu Shi Feng TransRe ST-1: A Good Graph is Worth a Million Dollars James Mackay, WTW show more Description While advanced techniques and automation are enabling actuaries to perform ever more complex analysis, often we do poorly in communicating even the basics of the work that we already do. At best, this can lead to ‘friction’ in the communication of reserve estimates, and at worst it can result in a lack of transparency and miscommunication. This session will explore how graphs and diagnostics can be used to identify trends in our data; more clearly explain key assumptions; and help tell a narrative that lays out why our overall reserving position is what is it. We’ll discuss the challenges of working with traditional technical data; consider how new approaches will make this challenge of communication potentially even greater; and we’ll also touch upon new graphical toolkits that reserving actuaries might consider. Time Wednesday, Sep 21 11:30AM - 12:45PM CDT Location Majestic D Speakers James Mackay WTW PD-3: Notable Changes in the ASOP 36 Exposure Draft Margaret Tiller Sherwood, Tiller Consulting Group, Inc.; Mary Frances Miller, Select Actuarial Services; Michelle Iarkowski, Deloitte Consulting LLP show more Description Actuarial practice has evolved since the current version of ASOP 36 became effective in 2011.

The rate pendulum in Public D&O is swinging back and picking up steam. Driven by a confluence of events, but at its core it is a story of "supply and demand". Too much capacity chasing demand growth that is failing expectations.
