The journal Risks has launched a Special Issue on “Catastrophe Risk and Insurance”.
Today, we live in a rapidly changing environment marked by the occurrences of all kinds of catastrophes in increasing frequencies and with increasing severities. Aside from the devastating consequences of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, insurers need to face wide-ranging impacts of climate change and other potential disasters. All these catastrophes have generated considerable challenges for insurance professionals and practitioners.
We would like to invite you to submit your research papers concerning or related to catastrophe risk and insurance to this Special Issue. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Modelling insurance risk;
- Flood risk;
- Valuation and managing insurance risk;
- Catastrophe risk;
- Emerging risks;
- Actuarial risk management solutions;
- Relationships between catastrophe risk and actuarial and economic variables;
- Limited liability and catastrophes.
Submitted papers will first be evaluated by editors. All manuscripts will go through the same peer-review process and be subject to the same journal standards.
