What’s your plan for managing catastrophe risk in a changing climate?

The increasing frequency and cost of natural disasters across the U.S. are forcing P&C insurers to handle an unprecedented volume of high-dollar property damage claims. Meanwhile, fraudulent property claims are increasing in both their volume and sophistication.

Reinsurance rates are rising and some policies even risk cancellation as more severe hurricanes, floods, convective storms and wildfires wreak havoc across the country. As climate change continues to bring more frequent and costly natural disasters, insurance carriers must reimagine their approach to forecasting and responding to catastrophes – before they affect the bottom line.
