The March 3 session is hosted by, Glenn Hiltpold.

Director of Actuarial Services - Safety Insurance
Glenn Hiltpold is currently the Chief Actuary at Safety Insurance, the fourth
largest automobile insurer in Massachusetts. An actuary applies math and
statistical methods to many of the business questions that an auto and
homeowner’s insurance company faces.
For example:
• What should we charge a family or individual for auto insurance for
a year? How do you do this when the “premium” is usually paid up
front, but claims can come months, or sometimes even years later.
• How much should an insurance company set aside to cover claims
that have happened to somebody, but the insurance company
doesn’t know about them yet?
• How can an insurance company protect itself from a hurricane, a
severe arctic winter and other natural disasters and not go out of
business?
Glenn will discuss how he became an actuary, touching on the exams that
are needed as well as the qualities and talents that he looks for when he is
looking to hire a new actuary.
