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.
