PRMIA and Bloomberg held a joint event at Bloomberg HQ yesterday evening entitled "How low can yields go?". Tom Keene of Bloomberg News proved himself to be a very dry, amusing and competent moderator and the panel he moderated was comprised of Harley S.…
PRMIA put on their Risk Year in Review event at the New York Life Insurance Company on Thursday. Some of the main points from the panel, starting with trade:
- The world continues to polarize between “open” and “closed” societies with associated attitudes towards trade and international exposure.
The A-Team put on another good event at DMS New York yesterday. Lots of good stuff talked and here are a few takeaways that I remember:

Numerix ran a great event on Thursday morning over at Microsoft’s offices here in New York. “The Road to Achieving a Unified View of Risk” was introduced by Paul Rowady of the TABB Group. As at our holiday event last December, Paul is a great speaker and trying to get him to stop talking is the main (positive) problem of working with him (his typical ebullience was also heightened by his appearance in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, apparently involving nothing illegal he assured me and even about which his mother phoned him during his presentation…). …
Just wanted to start this post with a quick best wishes to all affected by Hurricane Sandy in the New York area. Nature is a awesomely powerful thing and amply demonstrated it is always to be respected as a “risk”.
Good event on regulatory progress organised by PRMIA and hosted by Credit Suisse last night.…
