Compliance Professionals Can Support Enterprise Risk Management

Columbus, Ohio, October 18, 2012:  Speaking at the 2012 annual meeting, Joseph L. Petrelli, President of Demotech, Inc. advised the Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals (AICP) on the importance of the state filings and compliance effort to support corporate enterprise risk management.

“Few professionals are closer to market conditions, competition and the regulatory changes that occur at the state level than compliance professionals.  Equally important, compliance professionals are familiar with internal corporate strengths and weaknesses, often on a product by product basis.  I encourage AICP and its members to add value to the ERM process at their respective employers.”
