March 2012 webinar: Lessons learned from NatCat Events in Australasia

Overview

Australasia has had more than its fair share of natural catastrophes over the past 18 months or so, with floods, earthquakes and tsunamis from New Zealand to Japan. These events have  impacted upon the economies of the affected countries themselves and have damaged the insurance and reinsurance industry around the world.  Each natural catastrophe event is different and offers up new challenges. This webinar compares and contrasts the events and their effects  and  highlights the difficulties encountered by the international insurance industry. What are the lessons learned ?
