Understanding Wildfire Risk: Insights Across the Insurance Lifecycle

Monday, August 29, 2022
2:00 p.m. ET

Over the past five years, wildfire has emerged as one of the preeminent natural perils impacting the United States, with events ranging from the first gigafire, to mass destruction of neighborhoods and businesses, and fires crossing state lines. And, with long-term projections showing that this trend will likely continue, it is more important than ever for insurers to have a holistic wildfire risk assessment toolkit with everything from comprehensive risk scoring, early detection and event tracking, probabilistic modelling, mitigation, and claims-based insights.

In this session, our experts will explore how the wildfire peril has evolved, investigate the potential impacts of climate change on wildfire, and examine how the insurance industry can account for this peril.
