Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Recent events have proved the growing impact of climate change on extreme weather, and there is in addition an increased focus at Board level on the environmental element of ESG.

As a result of this, insurers and the wider financial services industry have a greater need than ever to understand the combined risk of floods and hurricanes, and how the intensity of both will change and correlate in years to come.

We were supported by Reask and Fathom to review the key drivers of change. We heard about how insurers are taking account of this for underwriting and portfolio management and were joined by some of the companies providing climate analytics and data.

Matthew, Robin and Ali were joined on stage by: 

  1. Thomas Loridan, Co-founder and Chief Science Officer, Reask
  2. Jamie Rodney, CEO, Reask
  3. Sue Barenbrug, Independent Consultant
  4. Dickie Whitaker, CEO, Oasis Loss Modelling Framework
  5. Paul Wilson, Partner, Securis
  6. David Vicary, Research and Development Manager, Brit
  7. Kris le Sage de Fontenay, Vice President, Insurance Leader UK, Capgemini
  8. Ollie Wing, Chief Research Officer, Fathom
  9. Andy Smith, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Fathom
  10. Robert Porter, Product Director, Vave
