Taking a Team Approach: A Reinsurer’s Perspective On Social Inflation

Social inflation refers to the impact that a number of societal factors can have on insurance claims and is widely considered to be a primary cause for driving loss costs in the commercial liability market.

White Paper Summary

Munich Re is well aware of the challenges posed by social inflation and feels comfortable that our current portfolio is being actively managed in order to stay ahead of the variety of factors contributing to the changing values of society.

Since social inflation is a multifaceted issue, it is not enough for just a single discipline to analyze and determine what’s driving social inflation’s impact on results. Therefore, companies must approach the issue with a cross-functional team, pulling expertise from claims, legal, underwriting, actuarial, and data analytics departments to understand and respond to the issue.
