Inside The Mind of An Insurance Underwriter: Helping Clients Navigate California's Current Underwriting Trends 

Kyle Cliff, Vice President
HUB International Insurance Services Inc.

Michelle Ortiz-Day, Business Development Manager
Chubb Personal Risk Services

James Pozzi, CFA, AVP, Regional Underwriting Manager

Thank You to Our Meeting Sponsor:


Program Description:
With losses in the tens of billions since the CA fires, carriers have tightened up their underwriting guidelines and CA homeowners are starting to feel the effects of the recent changes.  Whether you are a current homeowner or in the market to purchase a home; it's more difficult than ever to get the coverage you need.  We will review the factors your broker and underwriter look at before determining the eligibility of a property prior to quoting. We will also give you the rare opportunity to speak with and present questions to a panel of underwriters from some of the nation’s most respected insurance carriers (Chubb and Pure). 

Parking Information: The San Francisco Italian Athletic Club has discounted parking at APM located at 721 Filbert at Columbus. They will validate your parking which is $10 for up to 8 hours and $15 without validation. There is also street parking via meters.
