S&P Global Market Intelligence reflected on the tragic events of September 11 by posting an article with multiple insurance executives discussing their personal experiences and the professional impacts of the attacks. Dr. Bob Hartwig was one of the insurance executives featured. At the time of the attacks, Dr. Hartwig was the chief economist of the Insurance Information Institute, which placed him about four blocks away from the World Trade Center. He remembers it as “mayhem in Manhattan” with confusion over “whether or not the attacks were over.” Shortly after the first plane hit the World Trade Center, Dr. Hartwig was “inundated with media requests” with questions about claims arising from the attacks. He said, “My assessment was that these claims would be paid by the industry. It was never more than a transient question as to whether or not they would be.” Read more about Dr. Hartwig’s and other executives’ experiences on September 11 here.
