About This Event

This webinar is 90 minutes.

The COVID-19 pandemic not only induced wide-spread anxiety and inactivity in the global economy, but also raised questions around how the society could better absorb financial damages arising from future catastrophic events. This talk will address some important questions such as what a risk is, how risks can be transferred away from individuals and business owners, and what makes a risk insurable.

This presentation will summarize a paper that the presenters authored for the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), which was published in the first half of 2021.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the elements which make a risk insurable.
  2. Understand the role that public institutions play in providing a risk transfer mechanism for uninsurable risks.
  3. Understand the structures of and differences between alternate risk transfer mechanisms.
