Killing the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs:
Will progressive legislation and judicial decisions do what natural disasters couldn’t do in New York?
Our third conference series webinar will examine whether insurance companies can survive and thrive in New York. New York is the financial and commercial capital of the United States. As a leading insurance hub, the rest of the country closely follows its lead. In this webinar, we examine whether proposed legislation and recent judicial decisions will cause insurers to restrict the availability of insurance in New York.
Our panel consists of PMT partners, industry leaders, and Greenberg School of Risk Management professors who will look at the future of insurance in New York.
