This Working Party functions as a source of knowledge and expertise within the Actuarial Profession on matters relating to flooding with a particular focus on the UK

Key objectives:

  • develop the Profession’s position on UK flooding – including but not limited to insurance matters (this would cover affordability, availability and related matters such as resilience and planning)
  • produce reference material for UK actuaries when considering flood in pricing, capital modelling, reserving or related areas such as:
    • Relevant factors to consider when selecting and using a model
    • Variety in flood events
    • Considering climate change
  • build on the body of previous work to improve the understanding of flood risk amongst the industry, government and public including:
    • producing a GIRO paper (2015) (and digestible summary) to raise awareness amongst the profession of flood related issues
    • making our findings available to the wider insurance community and to inform debate, via participation in third party events
    • press releases in coordination with other relevant working parties and sub-committees
  • gather data and opinions from the industry to inform the above
  • work with industry bodies to report on market developments (availability and affordability of flood insurance) following the expected launch of Flood Re in mid 2015.
