Claim Levels Analytics Webinar

March 8, 2018

The largest expense items for the vast majority of property and casualty insurance companies are for loss payments and loss adjustment expenses for insured claims. It is important that insurers understand those claims and what’s driving them. Traditional actuarial loss reserving methods respond too slowly to be truly informative of changes underlying claims trends.

This webinar will cover some simple approaches to claims analytics and quickly move towards more thorough ways to model claims characteristics, such as identifying opportunities for claim recoveries, identifying fraudulent claims, performing claims triage, predicting claim severity. We’ll also discuss how to use those models to build, test and validate models for loss reserves (the money insurers have to set aside for future claim payments).
