FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OLDWICK - OCTOBER 19, 2020 08:52 AM (EDT)
AM Best will lead a webinar in conjunction with the American Land Title Association (ALTA) on the state of the U.S. title insurance industry. The webinar will take place Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020, at 1 p.m. (EDT).
The sudden economic slowdown and uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic led AM Best to revise its market segment outlook on the title insurance industry to negative in April 2020. During the event, Ann Modica, associate director, economic and industry research, and Fred Eslami, associate director, will discuss how the title insurance segment subsequently has navigated through the economic disruption caused by the pandemic. They also will discuss how the title industry has been evolving and modernizing, and the risks those initiatives present.
In her current role and a senior economist, Modica heads up AM Best’s country risk team, which assesses the economic, political and financial system risks that insurance companies encounter when operating in the more than 135 domiciles that impact insurers rated by AM Best. Eslami has a focus within AM Best’s alternative risk transfer group, rating domestic and offshore captive insurance companies, along with title insurance companies. He also leads AM Best’s monitoring of the cyber insurance market.
ALTA is a national trade association representing the interests of more than 6,400 title insurance companies, title and settlement agents, independent abstracters, title searchers and real estate attorneys. To attend the webinar, please go to the registration page.
