Improving Natural Catastrophe Resiliency:
Insurance vs Intervention

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
The Old Library, Lloyd's of London
1 Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA
3PM to 5:30PM


Topics include:

When It All Works: Positive Incentives

How do risk-based insurance rates lead to better consumer decisions? Using case studies, U.K.- specific examples and best practices from prominent U.S. cities, resiliency experts will speak to the positive incentives working in communities and how best to implement cost-effective risk mitigation practices for consumers.

Unintended Consequences: When Intervention Makes Things Worse

In the U.S., $1 spent on mitigation saves $4 in recovery, so why is the focus on post-disaster funding rather than preventative measures? We'll turn to a leading expert to examine what the insurance industry has learned from misguided policies and past mistakes, and how these lessons are informing current actions.

We hope you'll join policymakers, industry experts and senior leaders from RenaissanceRe for this important event.



There is no fee to attend.
