Our Actuarial department is responsible for providing McKee Risk Management with an objective understanding of the results of the company’s underwriting activities. The primary focus is monitoring price levels within each portfolio. Employing customized measurement tools, the Actuarial team tracks deviation from benchmark levels and changes in rate per exposure unit. Additionally, working closely with the Claims staff, historical claims experience is reviewed quarterly in order to project ultimate portfolio profitability. McKee has developed and is constantly refining its experience and exposure rating tools specifically designed for these products.
The Actuarial team collaborates with our underwriting committee on complex accounts within the portfolio.
