Ken Brandt is the co-President of Global Underwriting at Trans Re and in this episode, recorded on June 3, 2020, we're talking COVID-19. In this episode we cover:

  • What are good and bad outcomes for the (re)insurance market, (they're surprisingly similar!)
  • How the insurance industry might get commandeered by the government to satisfy social aims
  • Ken's observations on working remotely for the past 20 years
  • What do we lose as a face to face industry with remote work?
  • How pandemics are insurable and more!
