Dave was a member of Willis Re’s Analytics team based in New York. Dave provided ERM, risk  assessment and capital management advisory services to Willis Re’s insurance clients. He retired from Willis Re at the end of 2020.

In 2021, Dave was involved in two research projects.  Both projects were completed and papers published.  The projects are the COVID Mitigation Monitoring project which studied community mitigation activities in the US. Findings of the study can be found at the project website and the final paper is published at the SOA Research website.  The second project was the development of a paper titled “Modeling the Variety of Decision Making“.  One part of that paper was focused on discussion of an Adaptor risk mindset and that is summarized in “The Adaptor Emerges“.

Dave was also elected to the board of directors of the Society of Actuaries for a three year term (2021 to 2024) and serves on the International and Risk Committees.

The commentary on this blog are solely the responsibility of Dave Ingram and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of his former employer.

Prior to Willis Re, Dave was the Senior Director, ERM in the Insurance Ratings Group of Standard and Poor’s, New York. In that position, he spearheaded S&P’s initiative to incorporate ERM as one of the primary ratings criteria and the development of the framework for reviewing economic capital models. Dave also was co-author of the criteria that S&P is implementing to add consideration of ERM practice into all corporate ratings.

In addition, Dave was a Consulting Actuary with the New York Office of Milliman for 7 years. He consulted on risk management and risk analysis. Dave also has more than 20 years of actuarial and general management experience in the insurance industry where he served as corporate actuary, business unit head, planning officer, ALM actuary and pension actuary for a major US insurance company.

Dave has authored over 60 published articles relating to ERM. His paper “Risk and Light” won the 2009 Best Practical Paper award at the ERM Symposium. He also won that award three more times in the following five years. He has spoken on ERM at over 100 events organized by PRMIA, GARP, SOA, CAS, IAA, ASTIN, Groupe Consultatif, World-Bank, Goldman Sachs, and S&P in North America, Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa and South America. He has been the founder and Chair of the SOA Risk Management Task Force and the first Chair of the 3000 member Joint SOA/CAS/CIA Risk Management Section. He is a member of the board of ERM-II. He founded the International Network of Actuarial Risk Managers.  Dave was also the chair of the Enterprise and Financial Risks Committee of the International Actuarial Association.  Dave also led the projects to create the first ERM related professional standards for the U.S. Actuarial Standards Board and internationally for the Actuarial Standards Committee of the International Actuarial Association.

Dave is a graduate of Lehigh University with a BA in Mathematics and a concentration in journalism.

    8 Recent ERM Articles

    What to Do About Emerging Risks…
    Managing emerging risks requires more than just blue sky sessions to identify the black swans and unknown unknowns in the imagination. Actions must be taken to evaluate the potential impact of these risk and plan for their emergence and track their approach.
    http://blog.willis.com/2013/04/what-to-do-about-emerging-risks/

    ERM in the Hierarchy of Corporate Needs
    Businesses have a hierarchy of needs just like individuals. ERM helps to provide for one of those needs, but not the highest need. This puts the importance of risk management into the perspective that boards and executives may have.

    Creating a Risk Management Culture
    Often risk culture is talked about as the tone at the top. To make that tone permeate the entire corporate culture, executives and managers need to talk the risk talk constantly.

    Click to access act-2013-vol10-iss2-ingram.pdf

    Discovering empirical risk appetite
    More than half of all insurance companies lack a fully formed risk appetite statement. But in the course of normal operations, many decisions and actions are taken that if examined properly will reveal an empirical risk appetite.

    Click to access WillisRe_Analytics_Review_2013_Issue_online_version.pdf

    Get Ready for ORSA
    US insurers need to learn a new word – ORSA. It stands for Own Risk and Solvency Assessment. By 2015, all insurers with more than $500M of premiums need to prepare an ORSA report to be filed with their state regulator. A few are ready for this but most will need to do significant preparation.
    http://blog.willis.com/2013/02/u-s-insurers-need-to-get-ready-for-orsa/

    Help Wanted: Risk Tolerance
    Only the experienced need apply. Insurers with a history of risk measurement have a much easier time with forming their initial risk appetite statement. Firms without that experience will have a hard time coming to a final conclusion.
    http://www.soa.org/Library/Newsletters/The-Actuary-Magazine/2013/february/act-2013-vol10-iss1-toc.aspx
    A framework for validating your Economic Capital Model
    In the last several years, economic capital models have become ubiquitous for larger, complex insurers and now a broader swath of the industry is beginning to examine the potential benefits. The users of model outputs need assurance that the economic capital model adheres to its guiding conceptual principles, aligns with prior editions of the same model, and conforms to standards imposed by the regulator. Model validation is the process of confirming these qualities.

    Trifurcation:Divide to Conquer Risk
    Risk analytics often portray risk as a single quantity. But risk has many aspects. By splitting the projected future possibilities into three tranches, some new insights into the impact of different risk mitigation alternatives can be found.
