The Challenge of Climate Change and CAT Events


There is little debate that the recent trend of weather events indicates that our global climate is changing, and no industry will experience greater impact by the long-term consequences posed by this phenomenon than insurance.  It is also true that the insurance industry could play a key role in managing climate risk and encourage that disaster resilient strategies be implemented.

In this podcast, BMS Senior Meteorologist Andrew Siffert, describes the current and future impact of climate change on the insurance industry and a panel of his BMS colleagues discuss how the (re)insurance market is reacting to the CAT events in 2017- i.e. market shifts, market impact, and capital market reaction.
