fastTrack - Analytics in action - interactive learning

Thursday, 28 May, 2020

Analytics in Action is a session that explores the inputs and outputs into catastrophe models, key components in evaluating the risk associated with an insurance or reinsurance policy. This session is relevant for folks in the underwriting and insurance/reinsurance space but is also catered to risk managers or consultants that analyse and seek to quantify risk.

Attendees will get an inside look at the catastrophe modelling framework (particularly relevant in today’s world of pandemic, tropical cyclones, and earthquakes!) and understand the data and analytics that drive these tools. As is the case with most models, the motto ‘bad data in equals bad data out’ holds true in this session as well. The team at AIR will explore and analyse key data inputs that influence model results and ultimately inform decisions that are made. 

Regardless if you work in the catastrophe modelling space or not, this session seeks to educate attendees on methods for maintaining an analytical mindset in the context of risk management.
