Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent losses for re/insurers, coupled with the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the validity of business interruption claims, the industry has strictly excluded pandemic risks from within contracts.

As a result, many insurance carriers, and other organisations now have minimal options available to protect themselves against lost revenue driven by the impacts of a pandemic, including the implications of lockdowns.

However, according to Vesttoo, a technology firm that leverages proprietary artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions, by embracing some of the parametric and index-based risk transfer techniques already used across the reinsurance, retrocession and ILS market, there’s an opportunity to create meaningful hedges.

In this Vesttoo sponsored webcast presented by Artemis, numerous ideas and topics will be discussed, including how data and technology can help to make risk transfer options for pandemic exposure more possible, and what are indexed mortality hedges and why can they be used to cover a range of exposures to P&C pandemic risk.

The panel will also explore what type of pandemic outbreaks can be covered using this type of solution; what role is there for the capital markets investors; how to deal with and explain basis risk; and the underwriting appetite for these types of solutions.

This live and free-to-attend webcast event will be held at 10am EST (3pm BST) on May 25th 2021.

If you’re unable to attend the live broadcast it’s still worth registering for the webcast as it will also be available on-demand.

Registration is free and attendees can expect a vibrant discussion on some of the opportunities presented by parametric solutions for those exposed to climate related risks.
