    Focus - Property Cat: key strategic issues and trends ahead

    Catastrophe models are the Swiss-army knives in the Cat Risk Management survival kit – performing multiple functions for insurers including: pricing & risk acceptance decision support, portfolio accumulation management, capital modelling and business planning. Their use is widespread, and they have shaped the very language and framework with which the industry measures and communicates the direct financial risks associated with major natural disasters – and more latterly for man-made disasters too.

    The transfer of weather risk faced with the challenges of the future

    At the end of the 1990‘s, a new market emerged to enable weather-sensitive players to protect themselves from weather hazards: the weather derivatives market. The exceptional reach and significant consequences of the financial crisis that hit industrialised countries in 2008 have led to greater awareness of the role of risk management in business and, consequently, have reaffirmed the necessity of a weather risk market. At the interface of finance and insurance, weather derivatives are bringing to light a new risk transfer model, in which reinsurers are destined to play a leading role.

    Lessons for Insurance: Risk Management and Engineering in the major Earthquakes of 2010-2011

    This paper is a brief summary of the primary lessons for insureds and the insurance industry to be learned from the five major earthquakes of 2010-2011. The insurance industry can draw important lessons from these events because they occurred in three of the most advanced countries, and one of the least advanced countries, for the practice of earthquake engineering. The lessons have implications for earthquake engineering, but also for non-structural loss prevention and business continuity.
