May 2013 webinar: Natural Catastrophe modelling capabilities and advancements for the Asia region

Overview

Recent natural catastrophes in Asia have put the Nat Cat models and modelling methods for various perils once again in prime focus. For example, none of the NatCat models accurately captured the BI losses during Thailand Floods or the Tsunami wave heights and consequent  inundation and losses caused by Tohoku Earthquake were also not estimated accurately. Swiss Re focuses on natural catastrophes happening in Asian region and identified River Floods and TC induced Flooding as one of the major perils in the region and we continuously work towards improving our NatCat models for all perils with latest scientific advancements. Similarly other cat model developers are also concentrating on the region. This webinar aims to increase knowledge on Nat Cat modelling capabilities for Asia and how Swiss Re is preparing itself to provide better risk assessment.
