At the 2019 SCOR Annual Conference, Daniel Theben and Henry Bovy led an interactive discussion on the expanding risk universe – and what it means for the (re)insurance industry. The challenge for insurers is to manage the downsides of existing and new emerging risk while seizing opportunities to provide new solutions and support for their clients. This requires (re)insurers to pro-actively identify, assess and capture emerging risks in their risk models, once relevant for their risk profile.
In this blog, Vincent Foucart and Eric Le Mercier discuss the role of reinsurance in helping to build resilience in economies and communities around the world.

And they examine ways of helping to bridge this gap.
