Natural Hazards for Insurers


A combination of climate change, increasing urbanization and wealth concentration, and mounting exposure to natural hazards, are progressively ramping up economic and insured losses and imposing growing pressure on insurers and reinsurers to seek ways of limiting exposure. One of the most effective is through developing a better understanding of natural hazards, the processes that cause them, and the means by which their impacts on the market can be mitigated or avoided.

In an increasingly risky world, there can be no competitive advantage without improved knowledge and comprehension of natural hazards. Natural Hazards for Insurers is designed to provide insurers, reinsurers, and other stakeholders in the financial sector, with the intellectual and practical tools required to make more informed decisions in their day-to-day encounters with natural hazard exposure and loss.
