This is an industry where we insure people and businesses from losses by taking on the risk for a price, knowing we may have to pay for a significant loss down the road. Naturally, it is good business practice to avoid customers whose lifestyles [...]

How Insurers Survive Catastrophic Events

Insurance coverage is all about risk, but the biggest risks, and the hardest to predict, are from natural and man-made disasters. How do insurance companies handle catastrophic insurance losses? According to Property Claim Services, a catastrophe is “an event that causes $25 million or more in insured property losses and affects a significant number of property/casualty policyholders and insurers.” There are, of course, insurance carriers, known as reinsurers, who specialize in covering catastrophic losses.
