This year, Financial Institutions’ Christopher Luca co-chaired the event. Additionally, he and Financial Institutions’ Claims Robert Usinger participated on a panel titled, “Activist Investments and Claims in the Hedge Fund Space.” This panel discussed recent trends and exposures that are unique to the hedge fund space, as well as potential emerging issues.
Also part of a panel discussion this year was Enterprise Underwriting’s Ryan Sardelli. “The State of the D&O Marketplace” encompassed carrier competition, business segments like public, private and non-profit, specific classes of business, international exposures and trends.

OneBeacon Healthcare Group’s Sarah Logue and Linda McSmith are speaking at the 2017 Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) conference in Washington D.C. this week.
Their session, “Protect Your ASC by Evaluating Its Insurance Coverages,” outlines key objectives and strategies to help evaluate current insurance coverages and considerations for the next insurance renewal season. Each insurance policy or coverage option that is signed offers an opportunity to protect a facility’s assets. Reconsider the way risks are looked at and treated in an ASC.
Thursday’s presentation will help demonstrate strategies for leaders to implement that may affect the way they look at and treat risks in their organization.
Senior Vice President and Risk Manager Patty Hughes is participating today on a panel titled, “Risk Managing Midwifery Practices,” at the New England Regional Healthcare Risk Management Conference in Mystic, CT.
The practice of Midwifery is thousands of years old and still evolving. In the U.S. there are Licensed Midwives, Certified Nurse Midwives, Certified Midwives, Certified Professional Midwives, Direct Entry Midwives and Traditional Midwives. According to the Midwives Alliance of North America, slightly more than 10% of births in the U.S. are attended by midwives. Midwives may practice in private homes, clinics, birth centers, and hospitals, and in addition to maternity care they provide primary women’s health care. The panel will examine the growing use of midwifery practices, the risk associated with them and potential strategies to mitigate risks.
Patty is also exhibiting at the conference, so be sure to stop by to say hello!
