  • Property Catastrophe Models: Different Results From Three Models;
    Now What Do I Do?

    Reinsurers and insurers have long struggled with sorting through the significant differences that can exist when analyzing results generated by multiple catastrophe models. Representatives from three prominent catastrophe modeling firms will discuss potential reasons underlying these differences in opinions. Each modeling firm will select a unique region and peril to discuss. They will also introduce the latest scientific opinion for that area. This general session should provide fascinating insight into catastrophe models. It will be followed by a concurrent session with the same panel, which will allow more material to be covered and facilitate further discussions with the audience.
