Experience

Matt's experience is primarily in personal lines property and casualty insurance. His expertise includes:

  • Developing rating classification plans using generalized linear models
  • Pricing property lines using a type-of-loss (or by peril) analysis
  • Territorial analysis, augmented by the use of third-party data
  • Catastrophe-exposed property ratemaking, especially for the hurricane, tornado/hail, and earthquake perils
  • Development of underwriting rules to manage storm surge risk
  • The use of geological and hydrological data in rating and underwriting for the sinkhole peril

His past experience has included evaluating existing rating plans and optimizing them subject to business constraints, improving the loss ratio of underperforming books of business, and evaluating companies' competitive position. His specialty is pricing for natural catastrophes and using advanced analytical techniques for small companies with a limited volume of data.
