JLT Re at the RAA's Cat Modeling Conference, February 16-18, 2016, Orlando

13 January 2016

At the Reinsurance Association of America's upcoming Cat Risk Management program, "Pragmatic Decisions-Imprecise Data Points," JLT Re is sharing its expertise with others in the industry.

The Cat Risk Management Conference, to be held on February 16-18, 2016 in Orlando, will explore the changing world of cat models. With the science of catastrophe risk management evolving at a fast pace, catastrophe models have become more complex, and now offer the user multitudes of risk modeling assumptions and choices. The advent of high definition data will further revolutionize how risks are analyzed. Have these "advancements" increased or decreased the uncertainty in the model results? A distinguished group of speakers at the RAA's Cat Risk Management: Pragmatic Decisions-Imprecise Data Points will address these important issues.

On Tuesday, February 16, John DeMartini, EVP, will moderate an industry panel discussion on the challenges and uncertainties associated with using models to manage cat risk. Also on Tuesday afternoon, Joshua Darr, VP and Lead Meteorologist, Catastrophe Risk Management Services and Kimberly Roberts, AVP and Meteorologist, Catastrophe Risk Management Services, will discuss how atmospheric rivers are linked to extreme rainfall events, where and how often they occur, and the implications for natural catastrophe perils of flood, hurricane and wildfire risk.
