EAA's first virtual Climate Day on 12 May

The debate on climate change has rapidly evolved in recent years. It is no longer on whether the evidence of human impact on climate change is real, but on whether key mitigating strategies being adopted are sufficient. While actuaries are already developing models to quantify the impact of climate change on insurance businesses, it is becoming increasingly evident that the actuarial community's understanding of climate risk is not yet as developed as its expertise on traditional insurance risks such as mortality risk.

We begin our first EAA Climate Day by showing how to apply well-known laws of physics and chemistry to build a practical climate model. In order to make this an interactive exercise rather than a dry science lecture, we are going to run a few model sensitivities in live mode and gauge the audience's input as to what might happen in the model.

Then, we zoom into the insurance industry by examining various relevant national and European regulations - in particular, we discuss how insurers can take climate risks into consideration in their ORSA. Participants will be encouraged to share their views and approaches to this challenge.

That said, we should not see the climate change through compliance glasses. In fact, global warming also presents important opportunities. In particular, we are going to talk about investment opportunities it presents and take bonds, equities and alternative investments into consideration.

We conclude by looking into equity release mortgages. These complex long-term loans are impacted by a large number of market and insurance risks, ranging from property to mortality risk. Hence, they constitute a good example for the challenge of climate change manifesting itself through a large number of risks.

Join us on 12 May from 9:00 to 17:00 and take part in that special focus event. Please  register here .

We would be happy to welcome you online.
