Possible future impacts of Climate Change on the Insurance Industry

PI: Celine Herweijer
Institution: Institute of Actuaries (UK)
The Institute of Actuaries (a not-for-profit body in the UK interested in the impacts of climate change on society) has put together a Climate Change Working Party to investigate the impact of climate change projections on the insurance industry (general insurance, life assurance and pensions). The Working Party members include climate scientists, a research statistician, catastrophe model developers, and a number of actuaries and underwriters working in the (re)insurance industry. Using this diverse mix of expertise, the Working Party will couple statistical models and/or IPCC model output (in each case dependent on the timeframe under consideration) with economic and/or catastrophe models to address the economic implications of specific aspects of future climate. Three case studies proposed are: (1) Hurricanes, (2) Flood risk (from storm surge) in the UK, and (3) Impact on life assurance/pensions from longevity related to winter season temperatures in the UK.
