Summit Overview

The severity of natural or man-made catastrophes hitting Asia is increasing. Over the past 20 years in this region, catastrophe events have accounted for almost half the world's economic losses, amounting to more than US$900 billion. However, only less than 5% of economic losses in the developing region were insured. Billions of dollars of catastrophe in July 2017 have highlighted the size of the insurance and reinsurance protection gap in the region. Flooding and storms in Asia caused over US$10 billion of economic losses during the month. These make pay outs based on catastrophe events hitting pre-defined parameters.

Besides, the increase in frequency of catastrophic events striking the region has created the need for insurers, reinsurers, brokers, CAT modellers and developers, actuaries, government sector to continue design a financial protection scheme or risk transfer solution such as catastrophe bonds or insurance-linked securities (ILS) against natural disasters losses. The region’s rapid increases in exposure concentrations, poor data quality, pricing and relatively short insured loss history bring high level of uncertainty to risk management.
