Session 1: Climate Change Scenario Analysis for Insurers Revisited: Emerging Trends & Best Practices

Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.



An analysis of the impact of climate change on financial institution solvency, profitability, and other key performance metrics is, or is likely to be, required by financial regulators in most major economies in the very near future. Regulators are signaling that such impacts should be assessed through the use of scenario analysis, both qualitatively and quantitatively. This session will first provide an overview of recent changes to the regulatory landscape for insurers as it relates to the disclosure of climate risk. The session will then explore the mechanics and current best practices that actuaries and risk modelers may use in performing qualitative and quantitative climate risk scenario analyses, covering both physical and transition risks. Finally, it will explore how insurers can use transition planning to coordinate a cohesive transition to a low-carbon economy.

Learning Objectives:

1. Develop an understanding of regulatory requirements for climate risk disclosure across the world.
2. Identify and develop awareness of industry standard climate ‘pathways’ to consider within climate risk scenario modeling.
3. Explore how transition planning can help insurers integrate climate into their firm’s business strategy.
