Canadian Underwriter magazine’s March 2014 issue Digital Edition: http://bit.ly/cumar14 Cover Story: ‘Weather Beaten?’

Climate change is contributing to sea level rise, coupled with changing temperature and precipitation patterns. This has Canadian municipal risk managers grappling with challenges posed by more frequent and more severe disasters, including flood and damaging winds. While some officials focus on mitigation measures, such as improving drainage and building dikes, some experts suggest the best approach is to discourage development in high-risk areas, or at the very least, enforce building standards that reduce risk.

Claims Canada magazine’s February/March 2014 issue Digital Edition: http://bit.ly/ccfebmar14

Cover Story: ‘QUAKE Conundrum’ – The risk of a major earthquake in certain regions of Canada is real, according to geoscientists and catastrophe modelers. However, the awareness level of residents in vulnerable zones, as measured by the take-up rates of private insurance, is low. Independent adjusters say that while it is difficult to truly prepare for a major earthquake in an urban area, there are some lessons that can be gleaned from recent events in Japan, New Zealand and Chile. The question looming ahead: will Canada be ready for the big one?

Canadian Underwriter magazine’s February 2014 issue Digital Edition: http://bit.ly/cufeb14  – Cover Story: ‘Alternate Channels

While some retailers are letting customers interact using mobile technologies, social media and self-serve kiosks, the insurance industry is just starting to grapple with this “omni-channel environment.” Some say that carriers have done little more than move the paper-based transaction process online, while others note legacy policy administration systems are one obstacle.

Canadian Underwriter magazine’s January 2014 issue Digital Edition: http://bit.ly/cujan14 

 

Cover Story — ‘Wild Ride’: Severe weather — be it wind, rain or hail — will again be a focus in 2014. Will related claims make for a wild ride, leaving adjusters and insurers bruised, but not out, like during a tumultuous 2013? Or will calmer conditions prevail, allowing insurance partners to hang tight and get themselves prepared for the next rough year?

This Thursday, January 23rd: Free Live Webinar - Canada Earthquake Risk: From Science to Compliance

Canadian Underwriter magazine and AIR Worldwide have partnered to offer a webinar on seismic risk in Canada

Scientists, industry leaders, and regulators agree: it’s not a matter of IF a large earthquake will strike a major Canadian metropolitan area; it’s a matter of WHEN. Large losses from such an event would test the resiliency of residents, businesses, insurance companies, and the government.

AIR Worldwide, a leading catastrophe modeling firm, has played a key role in shaping the conversation currently taking place among the key stakeholders of the insurance industry and government about the industry’s financial readiness for a major earthquake event.

Join us on Thursday, January 23rd at 1:30pm EST to learn more about AIR’s view of seismic risk in Canada as well as the role catastrophe models play in compliance with OSFI Guideline B-9.

To register for the free webinar, participants can visit: http://bit.ly/CanadaEarthquakeRiskWebinar

Or for further information on the webinar: http://www.canadianunderwriter.ca/inspress/ProductDetail.aspx?id=12548
