This week the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) is hosting over 100 insurance leaders in Williamsburg, Virginia to discuss the current economy and investment strategies for insurers.
In a rapidly changing economic environment, the PCI Investment Seminar program is designed to provide the most relevant and helpful information to insurance industry CEOs, CFOs, chief investment officers and investment staff as well as top analysts and strategists. This week’s agenda features industry investment experts addressing topics such as: the U.S. economy; investing in equity and credit markets; alternative investments; financial reporting; implementing ERM and more.
“Our mission is to provide an opportunity for insurers and top investment analysts to discuss the current economy and evolving investment strategies,” said Jim Olsen, PCI’s senior director of accounting and investment policy. “We are witnessing the ever-increasing globalization of the capital and insurance markets and historical changes in U.S. and international financial regulation. Our seminar reflects PCI’s mission to promote and protect the viability of a competitive private insurance market for the benefit of consumers and insurers as we continue to emerge from the economic crisis and plan for the future.”
In June, PCI hosted the first Global Issues Financial Seminar in Washington, D.C. The two-day program featured a robust discussion on the latest international accounting and solvency regulation issues that will affect the bottom lines of U.S. insurers.
