Advisen Loss Data for Pricing and Analytics Workshop

We hope you will join us for few moments before the Advisen Predictive Modeling Insights Conference in a discussion on the applications of Advisen’s loss data for pricing and modeling.
The interactive conversation could range from D&O to Cyber to the use of Casualty Clash scenarios in modeling the aggregations of risk.
We want to tell you about our products. But more importantly, we find that these workshops promote productive dialogue amongst those who attend.
