Dr. Daniel Zimmerman, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Director, presented a general medical and epidemiological overview of COVID-19 and what we’ve learned in the last five months. His insights highlight the key factors that will affect the pandemic’s trajectory and are critical for insurers to understand.

Julianne Callaway, Vice President and Actuary, Strategic Research, shared insights uncovered from RGA’s wide-ranging expertise combining the scientific, advanced analytics, and actuarial knowledge of RGA’s Global Research and Data Analytics team. She discussed findings regarding three key components that impact COVID-19 mortality experience: age, underlying chronic health conditions, and gender. Additionally, she explored ways insurers can cope with the challenges of studying an evolving issue with often incomplete data.

Tim Rozar, Senior Vice President, Chief of Staff to the CEO, had an eye on the future. He shared his views on the near-term and lasting impacts of this pandemic on the insurance industry and society, including the potential for additional challenges as well as an improved outlook.

At RGA, we are eager to speak with clients about any support needed as we confront this challenge together.   Contact us to learn more about the resources, solutions, and services available.
