Emerging Risk and Insurance
Marilyn Rivers, CPCU, ARM, AIC, Director Risk and Safety/City Safety and Compliance Officer, City of Saratoga Springs (NY)
Our communities are a part of a global environment that is dynamically impacted by forces of nature, political climate, employee population, social media, constituency activity and government programming and mandates. Identifying and measuring emerging risk as part of the totality of our risk financing mechanisms is difficult in the best of times. The insurance that follows may be costly depending upon our exposures and our loss ratios. The discussion will include balancing reality with global economic pressures as you plan your risk management programming for public entities.
- Learn how to identify global economic trends that may impact your risk programming
- Understand how community pressures impact emerging risk
- Capitalize on the relationship with your agent/broker to assist with managing emerging risk
- Differentiate between perceived reality and the paranoia of risk
