It examines changes in the insurance environment, and particularly in claims, including technology, staffing, outsourcing, regulatory and catastrophe issues.

According to the study, property/casualty insurers in the United States will pay out an estimated $300 billion net in claims (including case incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses) during 2006. And, incurred losses are expected to approach $330 billion  in 2007, on a calendar-year basis.
