IxTY rISk aND insurance management
majors from 11 colleges and universities across the United States participated
in the AAMGA Education Foundation's
Annual Wholesale Insurance White
Paper contest this year. Topics included
cyber liability, terrorism, genomic testing, autonomous
cars, labor disputes, Uber, flood, kidnap and ransom,
solar storms, energy risks, medical malpractice, entertainment exposures, coastal risks, global marine, obesity,
captives and regulatory issues.
Each of the papers were submitted to eight industry
judges, who graded them without knowing the name
of the student or the college or university they are
currently attending, in order to ensure fairness. "This
was the largest number of papers ever submitted and
we had more RMI programs from universities involved
than ever before," said AAMGA University Chancellor
Mark Rothert of Rothert Insurance in Portland, OR.
"However, what was even more impressive was the
depth of the research and quality writing of the papers
submitted," he added.
Students submitting the three top scoring papers
are awarded a $2,500 scholarship from the AAMGA
Education Foundation, and are invited, along with their
faculty advisor, to an all-expense paid trip to attend the
AAMGA Annual Meeting, May 17-20, 2015 at the Gaylord
National Hotel in National Harbor, MD. Their papers are
also published here in this issue of Wholesale Insurance
The following abstracts represent the best of the submitted 2015 White Papers. The works cited and bibliographies have been edited due to space considerations.
