Mexico has been hit by no less than six major catastrophes since 1985. In 2005 Hurricane Wilma caused total economic damages of over USD 22 billion ‒ more than USD 8 billion of which were uninsured. Small wonder that the federal government has been an innovator in disaster risk management.
Agriculture accounts for 13.2% of Bolivia’s GDP and employs one in three of the working population. Small-scale family farmers in the highlands make a substantial contribution to agricultural production. To protect these and other farmers against natural disasters, the Bolivian government has established an agriculture insurance programme. Such is the importance of the industry, demand for insurance continues to be high.
In partnership with a strategic client, Swiss Re developed a product providing swift payouts to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A parametric trigger determines the amount of payout to the policyholders. No proof of loss is necessary. The simplicity of the cover makes insurance more accessible to firms who are exposed to earthquake risk.
Insufficient solar irradiation can put solar farm operators under immense pressure. To protect them against loss of income resulting from this threat, Swiss Re has developed a dedicated index-triggered insurance product.
Explosions are the primary cause of major incidents in the oil and petrochemical industries, where vast inventories of flammable materials and extreme process conditions lead to high loss potential. Given the trend in these industries towards even larger, more complex and integrated installations, this loss potential is inclined to increase in the future.
Wind farm operators are at the mercy of fluctuating winds. To protect against loss of income, Swiss Re has developed index-triggered insurance for Wind Resource Volatility. The gathering pace of renewable energy generation is accompanied by the inherent unpredictability of this power source and the financial risk this poses. Moreover, this risk not only affects renewable energy producers but also an ever-growing number of stakeholders all along the Value chain.
Over the past 50 years, 75 major flood events have been reported in Argentina, affecting around 13 million people and taking more than 500 lives. With the equivalent of USD 22.5bn lost since 1980, floods are the most costly natural catastrophe affecting the country. Adjusting for the country‘s GDP growth, the same events today would have caused accumulated losses of USD 43.5bn.
