About this talk

The U.S. is the epicenter of wildfire risk. All but three of the 19 most expensive wildfires, costing more than $1 billion in losses occurring in the U.S. Of all wildfire losses paid by the insurance industry since 1950, 70% has occurred since 2015 alone, according to Aon. Population shifts, climate change and new state guidelines can make it a complex peril for insurers and reinsurers to underwrite – but it remains an insurable risk, when using the right tools. Join us 11 a.m. EST on August 24, for a free webinar offered in association with Guidewire, to examine how insurers and reinsurers can better manage wildfire risk. Discussion questions include: --How to profitability underwrite wildfire-exposed properties --How to measure a property’s wildfire hazard risk and survivability --How to manage your portfolio’s wildfire aggregations --Why wildfire is a nationwide risk --How to find adequate market capacity --Why wildfire hazard models are focusing on the wrong variables --How climate change is impacting wildfire risk --How changes in California laws will impact the insurance industry Speakers include: Bob Frady, VP - HazardHub Jason Janofsky CTO, VP Engineering - Betterview Kevin Van Leer, Senior Director of Client Success - CAPE Analytics Moderator: Meg Green, Managing Editor, Insider Engage
