MAKING SENSE OF REINSURANCE CONTRACTS

Another new IRU seminar now available for online registration. This seminar is being coordinated by highly experienced Guy Carpenter professionals and will give attendees not only a good grounding in reinsurance treaty construction with an emphasis on the most important contractual elements as well as the ability to think through contract issues logically. There will be plenty of practical, hands-on, case study examples. The origin and intent of certain clauses will be explained as well as how they interact with others within a contract wording. This seminar is intended for attendees with some knowledge of reinsurance contracts but will cater to all experience levels.

Current contract wording issues such as multi-year agreements; expansion of occurrence hours clauses will be addressed along with global contractual issues such as trade sanctions; capital convergence/collateralized markets, cyber liability & terrorism risks. So get ready for a thoroughly up-to-the minute seminar!

Our thanks are due to the law firm of CROWELL & MORING LLP who, again, have kindly offered to host the IRU at their midtown Manhattan location at 590 Madison Avenue (between 56th & 57th streets).  The Crowell firm was our host for the very successful Next Generation Reinsurance Leadership seminar in July 2014 and we are delighted to be invited back.

Seating is limited to 55 and the registration fee for the 2-day event is $1,050 for IRU member company attendees and $1,350 for non-IRU member company registrants. Continental breakfast and a buffet lunch will be provided each day and there will be a Networking Reception for all at the conclusion of day one.
