Insurance: Balancing Regulatory Changes with Business Growth

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (Apr. 30, 2013) – Over the past 20 years, the financial services industry has had its share of crises. National and global regulatory environments are still rebounding from these events and the insurance industry is now feeling the impact. An upcoming conference at Saint Joseph's University will address recent regulatory changes affecting the industry and help local insurers navigate these changes for the competitive positioning of their businesses.   

"The potential implications for insurance due to evolving regulatory changes presents complex challenges," says Mike Angelina, executive director of Saint Joseph's Academy of Risk Management and Insurance. "At our insurance symposium, local insurers will hear from senior leaders, regulators and practitioners as they discuss the current state of regulation as well as global trends."

Former Senator and current CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners Ben Nelson will serve as the event's keynote speaker; former Pa. Commisioner Diane Koken will offer opening remarks. Topics range from risk-based capital to Own Risk Solvency Assessment; Sarbanes-Oxley to Dodd Frank; and Basel II to Solvency II.

The Insurance Regulatory Symposium will be held on campus in Mandeville Hall's Wolfington Teletorium from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 2. The half-day seminar will count as four hours of continuing education for professionals. The cost is $99 to attend.
