February 4, 2005

The Insurance Leadership Institute, a study group sponsored by GE Insurance Solutions, announced that the conference, to be held February 23, will analyze the effects of hurricanes and global warming on the Insurance Industry.

“Symposium participants will examine the devastating toll hurricanes took on the U.S. in 2004, and discuss the long-term implications of global warming and catastrophic weather events on the insurance industry,” said the bulletin. “Jim Elsner of Florida State University, Charles Meade of the RAND Institute, and Roger Pielke, Ph.D. of the University of Colorado will be the keynote presenters.”

The experts will be presenting their opinions on this risk to all GE Insurance Solutions employees, invited guests and customers “in a one-hour webinar broadcast all over the world,” it continued. “It will also include working breakout sessions that allow experts and guests to delve more deeply into critical issues.”

GE’s CEO Ron Pressman noted that the “Insurance Leadership Institute is an integral element of GE Insurance Solutions’ goal of delivering unsurpassed customer service,” says Ron Pressman, chairman and CEO of GE Insurance Solutions. “The Institute is a living embodiment of a mindset that leverages our passion for sharing expertise and information with others, so we can all continue to build our businesses and achieve ongoing success for our industry.”
