In this episode we cover the highlights of our recent live event in London “Tropical Cyclone – Managing Tomorrow’s Climate Risk Today with Reask and Fathom”. We heard about how insurers and portfolio managers are taking account of the increased need to understand the combined risk of floods and hurricanes. We were joined by some of the companies providing climate analytics and data including:

Talking points include:

  • What a globally correlated cyclone model looks like
