A shake in insurance history - The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake
The San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906 remains one of the most widely known natural disasters in modern history and is of particular relevance for the insurance industry. The disaster struck at a point in time where large cities with natural hazard exposures were rapidly growing in population, commerce and communication. A century later, Swiss Re’s publication, “A shake in insurance history - The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake” examines the broader ramifications of this event.
