Climate change a P&C threat & opportunity
Friday, 03 23 2018, Category: Nature, Country: World
Climate change will create challenges and also opportunities for the property & casualty insurance and reinsurance industry, according to rating agency Moody’s. However the threats presented by a changing climate are likely greater and Moody’s says this has a “net negative credit impact on the industry.”
Moody’s highlights a number of reasons that it sees climate risk as increasing in insurance and reinsurance, which of course suggests it’s also increasing in the insurance-linked securities (ILS) or catastrophe bond sector as well, in the rating agencies view.
