Global catastrophe experts gathered to explore a number of significant opportunities in natcat modelling for the insurance industry at the inaugural Catastrophe Knowledge Exchange, held at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue.
At the Catastrophe Knowledge Exchange, held at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue, the discussions identified particular challenges for modelling around correlated peril combinations like flood and wind, ranging from modelling the interactions between the perils, and how event definitions may vary to increased problems calibrating the models against losses once new ambiguity is introduced regarding hazard definitions.
At the inaugural Catastrophe Knowledge Exchange, held at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue, many of the world's leading natcat modellers met to discuss how to improve their natcat modelling capabilities and to learn from each other. At the event, the speakers spent less time on making formal presentations and more time engaging others in discussions and asking challenging questions.
The Head Earthquake, Cat Perils and Treaty Centre, Swiss Re co-presented “What current exposure data doesn't tell us" at the Catastrophe Knowledge Exchange event at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue.
Charged particles in the form of electrons and protons, as well as some heavy ions, are continuously emitted from the upper atmosphere of the sun in all directions. This emanation forms the solar wind, which from the earth’s point of view, is the fundamental component of space weather.
Solar storms (also called geomagnetic storms) are one of the most exciting phenomena in space – and one of the most difficult risks on earth to estimate. Watch the summary video of the Expert Hearing on Solar Storms.
