Reinsurance Session 1


$ Join reinsurance expert and industry veteran Greg Petrowski for an in-depth review of the historical detail, structure and transition to 2015 of controlled foreign corporations (CFCs). You will learn why CFCs are a popular choice for general agents and how they work to benefit you and your dealer clients. Petrowski brings more than 20 years of technical and practical experience to the stage, including executive leadership roles at GPWA and as a high profile authority in the automotive protection product reinsurance space. At the 2012 Agent Summit, he participated in “Reinsurance for Agents,” a Q&A-style discussion that led to the creation of the Reinsurance Symposium.

$ Spencer Re’s Brian Feldman will take the Agent Summit stage for the first time to deliver an exposé on the important and sometimes overlooked benefits of non-controlled foreign corporations (NCFCs). Feldman will explain how NCFCs are formed, reveal the technical differences among various domiciles and how they can serve as a mutually beneficial structure for general agents and dealers. Feldman began his career at an auto dealership more than 20 years ago and has found success as an insurance and reinsurance industry executive, starting with Motors Insurance/GMAC Insurance, Allstate Dealer Services and continuing with Spencer Re, where he applies his decades of experience to his current role as executive vice president.
