Some insurance websites we really respect:
InsureMyPath.org: Insure My Path is dedicated to help attract students into RMI majors and insurance careers. We apologize deeply for not having included them in this list of links before. They share much of our mission and do a wonderful job!
International Risk Management Institute (IRMI): IRMI has been around since 1978 when they published 3-ring binders with reference information and subscribers received quarterly printed updates. By now their 75,000 pages of content are all online and if you work for a big carrier or big broker chances are you already have access to them. IRMI should be your go-to place for insurance and risk management reference information.
Insurance Thought Leadership: Since 2010, ITL has strived to become an invitation-only platform where the top 200 or so thought leaders from all corners of our industry post their best ideas about everything from Actuarial Analysis to Workers Comp. ITL has developed a loyal following of 300,000+ readers, and if you’re not one of them, you’re quite simply falling behind! ITL was the inspiration for InsNerds.com which of course you should also check out often to keep up-to-date.
Insurance Entertainment: Bringing insurance into fun sized bites easily digestible for 21st century short attention span. The website is good. The newsletter is awesome. Update: IE might have been retired now that Shefi changed her focus to Coverager. I'm not sure, but I couldn't get it to load last time I tried.
Coverager: The inimitable Shefi who created Insurance Entertainment went on to create Coverager which is dedicated to covering #InsurTech.
Insurance Journal: Tony's favorite insurance trade magazine.
Property Casualty 360: A wonderful online magazine by National Underwriter.
CPCU Society: The premiere professional organization for insurance professionals. You do have your CPCU right?
Emphasis : Quarterly magazine for insurance executives by insurance consulting company extraordinaire Towers Watson. The articles are in-depth, cutting-edge, and genuinely excellent. We don’t know many lower and mid-level insurance professionals who read it, so this one is a bit of a secret. Give yourself the upper hand by reading the magazine the executives in our industry read.
The Human Workplace: Website or LinkedIn. Liz Ryan is one of our favorite and most prolific career writers on LinkedIn. She has a magical way of grabbing complicated career issues and bringing them down to earth (all illustrated with whimsical drawings of her own making). We love her articles!
Career Tools and Manager Tools: The best business podcast in the world, topically organized into hundreds of timeless topics. This is what you should listen on your commute every day. My only complaint is that I wish they also had Sales Tools and Marketing Tools.
Wait But Why: Tony's very favorite blog.
XKCD: A must for nerds.
GoodReads: Leaders are readers. This is the best place to organize your reading in a social way. Both Carly and Tony love it.
Erie Insurance: Regional commercially focused carrier. They make InsNerds.com possible since they employ Carly.
Liberty Mutual: International mutual insurance carrier. They make InsNerds.com possible since they employ Tony.
Insureon: Startup working to help you easily buy small business insurance.
Insurance Commentary: Bill Wilson's retirement project (I'm not sure he's working any less hours). Bill retired from the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America in December 2016 where he served as Assoc. VP of Education and Research and was the founder and director of the Big “I” Virtual University for over 17 years. He is the former Director of Education & Technical Affairs for the Insurors of Tennessee and, prior to that time, he was employed by Insurance Services Office, Inc. He is a graduate of the Illinois Institute of Technology with a B.S. degree in Fire Protection & Safety Engineering. Basically when it comes to insurance technical knowledge it doesn't get better than Bill and his new blog is enlightening AND entertaining.
