Before every new assignment we work with our clients to develop a scope document that details the goals and objectives for the audit. Reinsurance treaty audits are typically done to validate the submission, and to ensure that the cedant is observing Best Practices. As one client said, "does the video match the audio".
My personal goal in auditing is to provide value to my reinsurance client and the company being audited. I have broad industry experience, and can offer helpful observations.
My broad market experience allows me to audit the entire spectrum of property market segments, such as Global, National Property, Shared and Layered, E&S, Middle Market and Homeowner's. I developed "Best Practice" guidelines to evaluate the quality of the underwriting in each market segment.
My background in loss control engineering allows me to audit highly technical underwriting operations including Highly Protected Risk (HPR) companies. Various loss expectancy measurements such as EML, MFL, PML, and NLE are reviewed and analyzed. Finally, I have extensive experience in catastrophe modeling and the impact on price and risk selection.
