Uncertainty is a constant theme in the reinsurance industry, especially in disaster-prone regions for which detailed exposure data is lacking. How can re/insurers make meaningful risk assessments and write more business in these areas? This GfK webinar answers this question by showing how CRESTA zones can be used to estimate exposure for aggregated risk portfolios in rapidly emerging markets.
