About the event

The Swiss Re Institute's annual Natural Catastrophe sigma has become the benchmark in documenting the human and financial impact from disasters. The report compares these losses to prior years and historical averages to put the year in perspective.

Each sigma provides a more detailed look at specific perils, including causes and trend for the peril, impact on the insurance industry and what can be done to reduce the risk of the peril and recover when it strikes. For the 2021 sigma, the special focus is on floods and how this secondary peril is rivaling primary perils in terms of damage.

Our hybrid event will look at the main natural catastrophe loss drivers for 2021 and how the year stacks up against others. We'll take a deeper dive on flood risk and what the insurance industry can do to help build societal resilience in the face of increasing secondary perils.
