    Risk-based pricing. It’s a method used by insurers to set policy prices. But what rating variables are used and is risk-based pricing really the best tool to predict future losses? It’s a hot topic in insurance, but what does it really mean for the industry…and consumers? Our team of industry experts walks host Kevin Brandt through the whys and how it all works and explains where agents fit into the model and how it impacts them too.

    Insurance Industry Can Lead on DEI Solutions
     
    Do you recall the early days of the insurance industry’s response with EPLI, D&O, and other emerging risks and coverages? Well, we are witnessing a vast new risk area with diversity and inclusion insurance. The industry can play a huge role as both an employer and risk taker. Moreover, there is a new standard (ISO 30415) that offers a measured way to assess and reduce risk and price coverage. The angles are everywhere; cyber risk, for example, increases rapidly with unhappy workers.
    Our guest James Felton Keith is at the very nexus of these developments, using his insurance expertise to make a difference. James joins Agency Nation radio with host Peter van Aartrijk to walk us through these developments and the strategic opportunity for agents, brokers and carriers in a new field, which goes well beyond the HR department!

What you can potentially do with the data generated from these technologies has endless possibilities. In this session we will discuss how having easier to work with technology partners and access to data can help you better understand your business, uncover clear new business and retention opportunities, maximize your carrier and client relationships by knowing what "good" business looks like and how agencies streamline the workflow of their staff to become more profitable than ever. We look forward to you joining us as we discuss these top of mind opportunities.

#1 Insurance Podcast

I’ve listened to many, but this is the most informative and enjoyable option out there. Great production quality and Joey interviews as well as any I’ve heard. Give it a shot.

The film reel is awful to listen to

I like the podcast but have to fast forward through some of the best parts because the film reel sound is tough to listen to in my AirPods. Would be nice to remove that and then I would continue to tune in. Anyone else feeling that way?

Inspiring and insightful!

I enjoy listening to Joey Giangola on the Agency Nation podcast very much. I always learn something that I can apply to my practice as a high net worth insurance adviser. This podcast also keeps me up to date on industry happenings and inspires me to want to do more. Great job Joey!!
