CATASTROPHE MODELING FOR UNDERWRITERS & BROKERS*

Presented By

SUSAN DENIKE, Guy Carpenter
 Managing Director, North America Catastrophe Advisory

and

SARAH MACIOROWSKI, Guy Carpenter
Assistant Vice President

CLICK  HERE TO REGISTER

Cat modeling is part of all broker’s or underwriter’s work but what does it all mean?  Your presenters will explain what the components, acronyms and key metrics mean and how data drives modeling results.  Hear about different models – including for emerging risks – their output, and how they can be interpreted and applied.  This webinar is suitable for all involved in both property and casualty cat products and lines, including casualty clash and workers compensation.

It is planned to cover the following aspects:

  • Why cat models exist and how they’ve evolved
  • Basic building blocks (Hazard, Vulnerabilities, Financial aspects)
  • What lines of business are typically modeled?
  • Secondary modifiers
  • Core perils traditionally relied on vs secondary / emerging perils – how do Sub-perils factor in? i.e. storm surge, fire following
  • Understanding model uncertainty – model miss, what is and is not intended to be in the “out of the box” results

Interpreting results:

  • Acronyms – AAL, OEP, AEP, PML
  • Loss perspectives  – GU, GR, RL, TR

How are results used?

  • Insurance / Reinsurance, pricing, buying decisions, regulatory responses, rating agencies, etc.
  • How do companies use catastrophe models to inform reinsurance transactions?

Ms. Denike is based in Morristown, N.J.  She is  a Managing Director in Guy Carpenter’s Global Strategic Advisory group and specializes in the analysis of catastrophic risk. She began her career with Guy Carpenter more than 30 years ago as a property facultative broker.  After nearly 10 years in that role, she  transitioned to Analytics working in an advisory role in the development of EQECAT’s catastrophe modeling software, at the time a joint venture between Guy Carpenter and EQE.  Since that time, she has focused on managing the deployment of analytics, modeling and placement support for large, complex global accounts across a wide array of classes of business.  Susan graduated from the University at Albany (SUNY) with a degree in Business Administration and subsequently obtained her CPCU designation. 

Ms. Maciorowski is based in Guy Carpenter’s Minneapolis office. She works with a wide spectrum of clients in the analytics department, specifically the catastrophe modeling section. As part of this department, Sarah works with small mutual companies to large, global E&S companies to clean, model, and interpret exceedance probability results using multiple commercial model vendors. Sarah also is a part of Guy Carpenter’s Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) team, where she creates customized maps for clients to better visualize their portfolio. Her GIS skills enable her to supplement traditional analytic responses to client questions with spatial solutions as well.  Sarah studied applied mathematics, business, and stochastics in Chicago’s South Side at the Illinois Institute of Technology where she graduated early. Sarah’s four years of catastrophe modeling experience coupled with her nearly three years of GIS experience fuels her to continue finding the best solutions for Guy Carpenter’s clients.

* The asterisk at the end of this session title denotes that this is another in our “Reinsurance Basic Syllabus Series” of programs, forming part of the “Reinsurance Basic Syllabus”.  This initiative is bringing a series of twelve topics geared towards those professionals who have only recently joined this great industry or who have just a few years of experience.  It is intended to be a “Reinsurance Primer Series” of basic topics and which will be offered on a rolling two-year cycle.  A Certificate will be issued to participants who complete 10 of the 12 topics.

COULD POLITICAL RISK BE THE NEXT SOURCE OF CAT LOSS INFLATION?
June 9, 2021 ♦ 12 Noon – 1:30 pm (EST) ♦ Powered by Zoom

Presenter:
Thomas Johansmeyer, Head of PCS – a Verisk Company

PCS has noted the phenomenon that catastrophe losses seem to be getting larger and more frequent.  Mr. Johansmeyer will discuss PCS’s observations that in recent years political risk indicators, such as post-event legal and regulatory actions, have played a factor which has, and likely will, impact future insurer/reinsurer risk and capital management decisions.

The number of catastrophe events  designated by PCS®, a Verisk business™, in the United States has reached record-setting territory every year for the past five years. And the number of events reaching an industrywide loss threshold of at least US$1 billion has reached record levels in 3 of the last 4 years.

Tom Johansmeyer runs PCS, a Verisk business.  Under his leadership, PCS has expanded from North America to Japan and Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Turkey.  Tom also launched PCS’s foray into global cyber, marine and energy, terror, and large property risk losses.  Before PCS, Tom held re/insurance industry roles at Guy Carpenter and Deloitte.
