A.M. Best held its annual Insurance Market Briefing - Europe and Methodology Review Seminar events on Wednesday, 15 November, at ETC Venues St. Paul's in London.

The 2017 Insurance Market Briefing (view agenda) provided a platform for leading A.M. Best rating analysts and industry experts to discuss the impact of the prevailing economic and political conditions and rating trends for (re)insurers in key segments of the European (re)insurance sector and the London Market. There was also a number of thematic sessions based on recent A.M. Best research.

The popular annual Methodology Review Seminar (view agenda) also explored the latest updates to rating criteria and provided participants with a better understanding of the ongoing modifications to Best's Credit Rating Methodology (BCRM) and our proprietary Best's Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR) model.
