The Cognalysis Webinar Series

The Cognalysis Webinar Series seeks to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of topics relevant to today’s practicing actuaries, and to give actuaries another option when pursuing continuing education in organized activities.
It’s our goal each month to bring to the actuarial community a webinar and a speaker in order to provide topical, timely, and free access to quality continuing education opportunities.

If you have suggestions for an upcoming webinar, or would like to volunteer to present a topic, please contact Chuck Schipper at

Inflation and COVID Impacts, a Dangerous Combination for Actuaries

Speaker: Chris Gross, Cognalysis

Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 2:00pm EDT / 11:00am PDT


The COVID pandemic temporarily reduced the potential for losses under many insurance policies. It also led to significant a slowdown in claim settlement as courts were unable to function normally. Now high inflation has arrived, unseen at these levels for 40 years, changing the cost not only of the claims to come, but also likely changing the cost of policies written years ago. Together the combination of these effects creates a very murky picture for the property-casualty actuary (reserving and pricing). This webinar will demonstrate the seriousness of this problem for the industry and offer some possible analytical solutions.
