Synopsis

Timetrics Insight Report: Insuring Against Natural and Man-Made Catastrophe analyzes the market for natural and man-made catastrophe insurance, in the midst of increasing frequency and severity of catastrophic incidents.

The catastrophe insurance market is more prevalent in developed countries, as most of the insured loss emanates from developed regions, particularly the US. This is due to a higher rate of catastrophe insurance penetration into these markets compared to developing regions. Higher property values and greater accumulation of insured assets in areas exposed to catastrophes, contribute to substantial insured loss in developed regions. However, the most economic loss due to natural catastrophes emanates from developing economies due to underinsurance of catastrophe risk. Part of this is due to relatively immature nature of insurance markets in developing markets, meaning lack of catastrophe insurance availability.

Multilateral institutions, such as the World Bank, are playing a significant role in building the market for catastrophe insurance in developing economies, which tend to lack the expertise to understand and insure complex risks attached to natural and man-made catastrophes. Multilateral institutions can empower governments and insurers to offer catastrophe insurance by providing both capital and expertise.

The report also discusses in detail the efforts made by insurers and governments to fill the insurance 'gap' between economic and insured losses, signifying global opportunities for the insurance industry. Insurers, government and multilateral organizations are making a concerted effort to confront challenges in the catastrophe insurance market through a process of product innovation and deployment of new technologies.

Key Highlights

Most economic and insured losses in catastrophe insurance are attributed to natural catastrophes such as earthquakes, hurricanes and storms, which are classified as primary perils and contribute more to catastrophe loss than secondary perils such as floods, landslides, hailstorms and tornadoes. On average, only 14% of man-made disasters accounted for insured losses during 20092014. However, man-made disasters such as cyber risks and terrorist attacks have the potential to cause significant catastrophic losses in future.

Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes and winter storms, have the potential to cause colossal damage to life and property. They are defined as primary perils due to substantial economic losses they can cause. Primary perils contribute more to the total natural catastrophe losses at a global level than secondary perils. However, factors can differ at regional or country level. Secondary perils such as flood, landslides, hailstorms and tornadoes can also result in high catastrophic losses, as these are higher-frequency events, with severity varying by specific region.

Asia is much more vulnerable to natural catastrophes than other regions and has accounted for 40% of all the worlds disasters in the past decade. High population densities in low-sea-level areas and lengthy coastlines make the region vulnerable particularly Southeast Asia. In total, 56% of the 100 cities most exposed to natural disasters are in Asia, according to risk analysis firm Verisk Maplecroft.

The market for catastrophe bonds has reduced insurers dependence on traditional reinsurance capital. It has also enabled insurers to build capacity to underwrite high risks associated with natural catastrophes. Catastrophe bonds reduce the reserve requirement to be maintained by the insurer, and increase insurance protection with negligible credit risk.
