AM Best Senior Financial Analyst to Discuss Impact of Updated Best’s Credit Rating Methodology on Medical Professional Liability Insurers at JLT Re Conference

February 28, 2019

OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 28, 2019--AM Best will participate in the 2019 Medical Professional Liability (MPL) Leadership Conference, hosted by JLT Re and taking place Mar. 6-7, 2019, at the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Vicky Riggs, AM Best senior financial analyst, will lead a session on Mar. 7 at 1p.m. (PST), titled, “AM Best: Update on Methodology and Outlook for MPL.” The focus of the session is what effect AM Best’s 2017 update to its Best’s Credit Rating Methodology has had on MPL insurance companies, as well as the rating agency’s negative market segment outlook on the sector for 2019. This current outlook mainly is due to pressures created by shrinking demands, as well as prolonged soft market conditions, diminishing reserve redundancies and concerns about potential increases in claims severity and in the frequency of high severity losses. Riggs will discuss these factors and others.

The event will feature educational sessions with a number of executives in the MPL industry, along with practice leaders at JLT Re, a reinsurance broker. To learn more about the annual conference, please view the official agenda.
