- To explain in layman’s (or actuarial) terms the science behind hurricane formation and impact (shortest part)
- To understand the history of hurricanes and how they have shaped the landscape of (re)insurance markets through a series of case studies
- Discuss the current state of the market, conditions affecting market response and looking to influence how markets react post-event or after a run of clean years
- Produce a paper outlining a) the basic science behind hurricanes and their drivers (including seasonal and multi-annual impacts), b) case studies on major hurricane years including loss estimation and how the market responded and c) an actuarial perspective on how well the market is responding to these events
The 'A Study of Major Hurricanes and Subsequent Market Response' Working Party invites you to complete a survey to help them build an understanding of US hurricanes and the historical market response. Further details can be found here.
Hurricane Clustering in the North Atlantic: A Discussion
Thursday, November 29 from 3 – 5pm
Followed by Networking Reception
An ISCM/IFoA Event Hosted by Lloyd’s
The 2017 and 2018 hurricane seasons have again focussed the attention of the catastrophe risk management and insurance community on the topic of hurricane clustering in the North Atlantic. Have the most recent hurricane seasons caused us to update our view of clustering as a meteorological occurrence, and if so, in what ways?
Please join us in the Lloyd’s Library on Thursday, November 29, for a presentation and panel discussion by leading industry experts from AIR, Corelogic and RMS, researchers from Bank of England, and SCOR on this important topic. During the two-hour session, we will hear the latest research and views on the existence of clustering and its interannual variability, the relevance of climate change, its impact on aggregate industry losses, and the extent to which clustering could and/or should be included in modelled views of risk.
The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception at One Under Lime.
Register your interest for the event
We look forward to seeing you in November.

Cancer incidence and mortality vary by region and socioeconomic status. Modelling the structure development and trends of cancer risk is important for insurance purposes and can impact pricing and reserving in related health insurance fields such as critical illness insurance and care provision.
A panel discussion with investment representatives discussing the impact of investment on climate change and vice versa.
This event is part of The Road to Glasgow: IFoA’s Sustainability Thought Leadership Series which will provide a platform for prominent contributors so that our members and others can understand the perspectives of a wide range of parties interested in the climate debate.
Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
How governments and societies collectively respond to the climate crisis is increasingly being analysed through the lens of intergenerational fairness. Our expert panel will assess and explore the extent to which inter-generous fairness is being considered in climate policies, the lessons from those countries who are leading the way on fairness and justice in climate interventions, and more.
This practical course is aimed at actuaries at any stage of their career who want to develop their own growth mindset and apply it to their work setting and personal or professional lifelong learning. The content of the course builds on the lecture given by Dr Helen Wright on Growth Mindset as part of the President’s 2021 Lecture series, and will be delivered over a period of 2 months, from mid-October to early December.
The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.
Content will be aimed at all actuaries looking to understand the issues surrounding mental health in insurance and in particular those looking to ensure products and processes widen access for, and are most useful to, those experiencing periods of poor mental health.
