Presenters in this #RiskConversations webinar, held 11 November 2020, explored the findings in The Geneva Association’s report, An Investigation into the Insurability of Pandemic Risk, which addresses a number of previously unanswered questions:
- What are the protection gaps in the areas of business interruption, health and mortality?
- How much capacity do insurers have to absorb related losses and help close these gaps?
- Which criteria determine whether a risk is insurable?
- How do the characteristics of pandemics – and their level of insurability – compare to other catastrophic risks?
- Kai-Uwe Schanz, Head of Research & Foresight, The Geneva Association
- Hato Schmeiser, Chair for Risk Management and Insurance and Director, Institute of Insurance Economics, University of St. Gallen
- Alexander Braun, Vice Director, Institute of Insurance Economics, University of St. Gallen
