Swiss Re Corporate Solutions at 2011 PLUS International Conference

San Diego, California, provided a sunny background for the 24th Annual Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) Conference. PLUS is the world's largest Professional Liability conference and this year nearly 1500 industry participants attended. Corporate Solutions attended with nearly 20 delegates representing various units.

The conference was held over three days (2-4 November 2011) and included keynote speakers Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Daniel Pink , best-selling author, and Dr. Robert Hartwig, President and Economist at the Insurance Information Institute.

For the fifth consecutive year, Corporate Solutions was a gold sponsor of the conference. This enabled us to promote our insurance brand and our broad PL/PI capabilities across all conference materials. Additionally, it provided Corporate Solutions with prime space to hold over 50 client and prospect meetings over the three days.

The team used the conference to launch and promote two new products, Primary D&O and Non-Admitted LPL.  "As soon as the Non-admitted LPL press release was launched the first day of PLUS we had clients asking about it,” said Milind Pandya, Head of Small & Mid-Size US Lawyers. "Utilizing PLUS to announce our new Non-admitted product was impactful as it enabled us to personally discuss and promote this new product with our brokers during the conference."    

"Our teams have been focused on cross-selling, expanding our market reach and increasing our submission flow," said Markus Zwyssig, Head of the Professional and Financial Services unit. "Our primary objectives for PLUS were to increase the visibility of the multiple industry segments in which we serve and to cross-promote our teams and capabilities across our broker partners."   

"We are committed to ensuring that we address the needs of our brokers and clients," added Nik Beck, Head of Specialties. "As we evolve as an organization and in the changing market environment, the dialogue with our clients and brokers is particularly critical. We want to be a predictable and reliable partner -- this is a key goal for Swiss Re Corporate Solutions."

The conference concluded with the annual Corporate Solutions' cocktail reception at the Hotel Andaz Rooftop where approximately 100 clients and prospects gathered to network and enjoy the breathtaking views of San Diego.
