P/C Insurers Apply Lessons from Hurricane Katrina
June 2, 2009
The property/casualty insurance industry is employing advancements in catastrophe modeling and considering the impact of the creation of a national catastrophe fund as it applies lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina.
Experts on a panel moderated by Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon at the Casualty Actuarial Society's Spring Meeting in New Orleans discussed the post-catastrophe landscape in the city that was dramatically changed by 2005's Katrina.
Since Hurricane Katrina, catastrophe modeling firms and the property and casualty insurance industry have learned more about the scientific and actuarial nature of hurricane risk, experts say.
The current state of the science on climate change projects potentially less frequent, but more severe tropical cyclones, said John Rollins, vice president of AIR Worldwide Corp. Rollins added that research on the impact of climate anomalies on hurricanes has influenced modeling advances.
"The research of AIR and other modeling companies has tried to capitalize on climate science and adapt it into the parameters of the catastrophe models," Rollins said.
In validating the models, the 2004/2005 hurricanes provided unprecedented quantities of detailed claims data, Rollins said. He said that modeling firms review actual insurer storm claims data against modeled damage for the same locations and examine results by coverage, construction, and occupancy type.
For example, damage to pool enclosures, which are common in Florida and can cost between $10,000 to $50,000, accounted for about 15-20 percent of losses from these hurricanes. The average claim per unit of exposure was reported to be as much as 35 percent higher for homes with pool enclosures.
"We have to get a handle on what to charge for that because it's the type of thing that might fly under the radar of a catastrophe modeler and the industry until after an event," Rollins said.
Modelers are also in a unique position to help companies address exposure data challenges, he emphasized. They can do this by delivering commercial and residential property specific data, including replacement value, and enhancing the capture and use of quality exposure data at the point of underwriting.
Under Commissioner Donelon's leadership, the Louisiana market has even gotten stronger under the policies the commissioner implemented, says John Forney, managing director for public finance at Raymond James & Associates Inc. The management team Donelon hired at the state-run property insurer of last resort, Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (LCPIC), has also been an asset, he added.
"The provision of insurance for natural catastrophes is not a science that is cast in stone," Forney said. "It occurs at the intersection of insurance, finance, economics and public policy and there isn't a huge realm of data that enables an actuary to pinpoint exactly how this whole business works and how it should work from both the financial and actuarial standpoint, as well as from a public policy standpoint," he said.
Forney listed some of the major catastrophes in the U.S. since Hurricane Andrew in 1992 that caused $15.5 billion in insured losses in South Florida and pointed out that seven of the 10 most costly catastrophes have occurred since 2004.
Forney said lessons learned include the extreme difficulty of insuring losses from natural catastrophes.
