  • How do you explain to insureds why insurance is not a commodity – or why price should not be the determining consideration in choosing an insurance company/policy?
  • What do you say to the consumer on why they cannot rely on insurance advice from consumer websites and publications – or sometimes from within the industry itself?
  • Examples will be given demonstrating that not all policies are the same – refuting the myth that insurance is a commodity.
  • What is the impact today and in the future of insurtech and so-called “disrupters”?
  • How can you protect customers from the promise of “fast, easy and cheap?”

“Use of Telematics to Reduce Your Crash Risk”
Howard Sewell, ARM, Liberty Mutual Insurance
Approved for one hour of CE

SewellHowell_headshot 0717.jpgHoward Sewell
Usage-based insurance, or telematics, allows insurers to more closely align driving behaviors with premium rates for auto policies. The implementation of telematics systems in commercial fleet vehicles has proved very useful in managing and assessing risk profiles. It's predicted that by the end of next year, 80 percent of vehicles sold in the United States will include embedded telematics. 

  • Defining telematics
  • Selecting information analytics
  • Using the data to understand driving behaviors
  • ID actionable items to improve behaviors and reduce crash risk
“Managing Your Contractual Liability”
Howard Sewell, ARM, Liberty Mutual Insurance
Approved for one hour of CE

Contractual liability insurance can be defined as coverage for the named insured's liability that is created when it assumes, in an oral or written contract, the financial consequences of another's negligent acts or omissions that results in bodily injury or property damage to a third party.

  • Better understand your contractual liability risk 
  • Define risk transfer/acceptance process
  • Best practices for effective control
