Combining expertise in weather and climate science with a growing knowledge of industry needs to enable more effective and more accurate risk assessment for insurance and capital trading.
The insurance market has developed robust risk management procedures in the past 25 years. The Insurance and Capital Markets team applies expert knowledge in atmospheric analysis and prediction on all timescales to the benefit of insurers, reinsurers and the wider financial market. We provide an independent view of weather and climate hazard for research, operational response and compliance with regulatory requirements.
Currently focused on the development of products to aid insurers in financial and logistical planning around European windstorms, the team's scope will broaden into other hazards (known as 'perils'), regions and market sectors.
