  Chair's introduction
  Plenary 1: UK motor bodily injury claims - a practitioner’s perspective

Reserving UK motor BI claims is probably more challenging than it has ever been.  The most important drivers of the reserves are either not present in the development data or are hard to discern using traditional methods.

Nonetheless, competitive pressure remains intense and, in order for firms to maintain their edge, they need to understand their liabilities as clearly as possible.

We will provide a practical perspective on how we’ve been helping to address these challenges when working with insurers over the past year or so.  

This will include a number of case studies and ideas to help you improve the understanding of the liabilities for your firm.  Some of the lessons may also have wider applicability to other classes of business.
