SESSION CHANGE

16.30 - 17.30   

WORKSHOP 4:

Building a view of risk: the next level of transparency

Paul Della-MartaHead of Catastrophe Research (Partner Re)

Will Gardner, Managing Director (COMBUS)

 

We will demonstrate the value of greater transparency from vendor model providers for users creating their own view of risk by demonstrating critical model development methodological choices and calibrating of sensitive model parameters using examples from our own proprietary models. Other examples will demonstrate the difficulty in drawing conclusions from benchmarking individual components with other sources.

 

 

WORKSHOP 5:

Unlocking the potential of earth observation based spatial disaggregation in cat modelling and risk underwriting:
Oasis implementation of Inhance® spatial disaggregation API 

Charles Huyck, Executive Vice President (ImageCat)

Dionne Lemaire, Lead Catastrophe Risk Analyst (Trans Re)

Junaid Seria, Global Head of Cat Model R&D and Governance (SCOR P&C)

Session Moderator: Shubharoop Ghosh, Vice President of Data Services (ImageCat)

 

The promise of Earth Observation (EO) based exposure data has arrived and is ready for integration into the insurance workflow. One of the key applications of EO based exposure is “Spatial Disaggregation” which helps in reducing uncertainty in cat modelling results when more refined location and value is not available to insurers. This session will bring together reinsurance industry leaders in risk modeling and management, and technology providers and scientists who develop EO based spatial disaggregation product and API in order to make the case for integration into cat modelling and risk underwriting. Presentations by the expert panel will cover the business and operational aspects for using spatial disaggregation through the Inhance® Spatial Disaggregation API and its associated challenges, provide an overview of the data and analysis behind a global spatial disaggregation solution, present real examples, and discuss benefits. The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.

17.30 - 18.30
