Mark Nawrath Set To Conduct Partner Session at iPartners Discovery Conference

Mark Nawrath, Director of Account Management at Perr&Knight, will conduct a “Statistical Reporting & Compliance – Challenges & Solutions” partner session at the upcoming iPartners Discovery Conference on Thursday, September 29, 2011. From the iPartners session description:

Statistical Reporting & Compliance – Challenges & Solutions
Perr&Knight routinely handles statistical report submissions to bureaus, annual statement reconciliations, state special data calls and statistical bureau alternative analyses for many P&C insurers. Most recently, they have been proactively developing services and solutions that take more of a holistic view of aggregating data from client’s systems so that multiple regulatory reporting requirements can be met simultaneously.  Frankly, much of the data required by independent entities – including ISO, NCCI and Medicare – is overlapping and this session will familiarize the user with the latest in mandated reporting requirements as well as their collaboration with iPartners to help our clients become more efficient in statistical/regulatory, financial and management reporting; ensure compliance; and avoid fines.
