May CPCU Educational Webinar-Reinsurance – ESG and Underwriting

05/12/22 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Topic Summary: 

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) has been a big topic in the investing world for some time as companies realize those factors can affect profits directly and how their company is seen by investors. Many of those topics have now come around to insurance companies on the underwriting side as well. Most obviously is the need for property insurers to consider whether environmental factors such as climate change will increase the risk of wildfires and natural catastrophes. Beyond that specific case, our speaker will share some of the ways Swiss Re reflects ESG in its underwriting and how that in turn is part of larger focus the company has on sustainability and resilience.


Guest Speaker: Todd J Hess, FCAS, MAAA
