AM Best will host a complimentary webinar, sponsored by Xceedance, on Sept. 29, 2020, at 12 p.m. EDT. Data and analytics are leading to a revolution in insurance, not the least of which includes on-demand catastrophe modelling and exposure analysis.

In this one-hour webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the technical advances of three key U.S. peril models (i.e., earthquake, hurricane and flood) and describe pioneering, on-demand risk- and loss-analysis services based on those models. The panel will examine how (re)insurers and brokers can get a credible view of their risks by identifying new or hidden loss drivers. Webinar participants will gain perspective on cost-effectively pricing key U.S. catastrophe risks with more confidence, using a combination of advanced models and associated on-demand services in conjunction with the Oasis Loss Modelling Framework.
