According to the Swiss Re Institute, 2022 was the second consecutive year in which insured losses from natural catastrophes exceeded $100 billion.

From raging wildfires to disastrous floods, insurers are grappling with the challenges of increased frequency and severity of natural catastrophes – in 2022, insured losses from NATCAT exceeded $100 billion for the second year in a row (Swiss Re Institute). This is an increase of $18 billion, compared to 2020. 

Without a crystal ball, it’s crucial for insurers to harness the power of data & analytics to better inform decisions, mitigate risks, and proactively tackle the challenges posed by natural catastrophes.
