I’m now back from the NYSSA Insurance Conference. It was another great opportunity to see friends. It also proved to be a very interesting conference from an investor relations perspective, for a number of different reasons.
I expect to do a couple of posts on those topics, and I wanted to start by highlighting an effective (although complex) slide used by Argo Group (NASDAQ:AGII) in their presentation.
As background, generally the various permutations of “timeline” slides provide only a look at events in a company’s history, giving little insight into the benefits or implications of those events. After the NYSSA Conference two years ago, I did a post looking at how an insurance company might present a timeline that explained their history in a way that offered greater value to investors.
At this year’s conference, in real time, Argo used a slide very similar to the suggestion made in that post. (Note that InsuranceIR does not have a business relationship with Argo Group. I also do not know if they were aware of the earlier post.) In any case, below is a copy of the slide used (click on the slide to link to the full presentation from the company’s website).
The graph and accompanying details provided by Argo gives investors useful information on the changes that have occurred in their business as they have made strategic decisions. Kudos!
