Introduction to Natural Catastrophe Modelling
28. November, 09:00 - 12:30
Natural Catastrophe Models are a key ingredient for the assessment of Nat Cat risk. Questions like “What losses do we expect from catastrophic events on average?” and “What losses do we need to expect in the worst case?” are becoming more and more relevant, in particular considering climate change. Natural Catastrophe Models try to answer these questions in a statistical sense, and have for many years now become an important tool for the assessment of (re-)insurance contracts. In this web session, we will give a basic introduction to Nat Cat Modelling and its applications.
