Storm over Europe – An underestimated risk
Winter storms in Europe represent a major catastrophe loss potential for the insurance industry, as the events of December 1999 again clearly demonstrated. Since storm activity in Europe is subject to major fluctuations which stretch out across several years, the storm risk tends to be severely underestimated by many players in the insurance industry. After all, the last fifty years have shown that an insured storm loss in the order of some USD 7 billion can be expected to occur in Europe about once every ten years.
