You may know Swiss Re as a leading global reinsurer and foremost authority on catastrophe risk. But, did you know Swiss Re's collaboration with SpatialKey directly integrates their CatNet® hazard data into SpatialKey's underwriting solution? This collaboration is helping underwriters make more informed decisions by putting access to global multi-peril hazard data at their fingertips.
In this interview, we catch up with Peter Hausmann, Head of Nat Cat and Engineering Solutions at Swiss Re, where we talk about Cat models, climate change, how insurers can help close the protection gap, and more. This is a must-read interview for insurers underwriting natural catastrophe risks globally.
KatRisk’s probabilistic multi-peril models are propelling this Cat modeler, largely known for their U.S. flood models, to the forefront of the flood modeling space. For more than five years, SpatialKey has worked with KatRisk to help underwriters and risk analysts gain a better understanding of flood risk. Our clients are finding that KatRisk’s overall score and flood depths by return period are helping underwriters understand both fluvial and pluvial flood risk like never before. In this interview, we talk with KatRisk co-founder, Dag Lohmann, about the challenges of modeling U.S. flood risk, FEMA, and what’s next for this innovative Cat modeler.
P&C insurers can now understand the immediate business impact of hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons, as well as U.S. severe storms with SpatialKey's next iteration of its automated events notifications solution.
