LOMA studies new risk.

The Life Office Management Association has released a new report, The New World of Risk, examining how insurers are increasingly underwriting man-made risks, such as those involved in terrorism, technological networks, and legal liability. The report describes these risk exposures in detail and the efforts being made by the United States government and other institutions to control them.

Among the topics LOMA explores are an analysis of nuclear terrorism and dm methods being used to reduce this threat; the insurance implications of biological and chemical warfare; legal liability, including increasing tort liability and fiduciary, responsibilities for directors and officers; expanded risks involving the global economy, including risks in international outsourcing; and minimizing damage from attacks on technological networks.

The 123-page LOMA report is free for downloading by employees of LOMA member companies. A paper copy of the report is available to members for $125 and to non-members for $375. For more information, or to order, contact LOMA at 770-984-3784,,
