In addition, features on financial trends and operations include insights on carrier loss reserve adequacy, the prospect of inflation in 2021, the emergence of embedded insurance, as well as advice for InsurTechs and specialty firms about choosing an operational structure (MGA or carrier) and knowing when to take a growth pause.
