This webinar will re-present the workshop conducted at the TMPAA Mid-Year Meeting focusing on the importance of quality data collection.

Good data helps you manage and understand your own business, and allows you to create stronger carrier relationships as well as greater access to available capacity. The team at BMS Intermediaries will explain in depth what really happens to your program when it is submitted to an insurance company. The presentation will discuss the minimum amount of information required for capacity providers to consider and measure risk, and also show what can be achieved when excellent data is provided. In this new world of alternative capital, with an abundance of industry capacity, how will you maximize your share? Attendees can also expect tools and guidance to get started on or improve your data collection process. Please plan to join the team at BMS Intermediaries for this important discussion.
