Earthquake Insurance: Should California Be More Like New Zealand?

This article was originally published by Reactions Magazine, click here to read the article (Reactions subscribers only). California has eight-times the population of New Zealand (40 million compared to 5 million), and more than ten times the Gross Domestic Product. California is also geographically around sixty percent larger. Both regions are seismically active. But did you know there is more insured residential earthquake exposure in New Zealand than there…

Recent Cyberattacks Raise Awareness of Cyber Risk in New Zealand, Australia, and Countries Across Asia

Leaders representing smaller nations might assume that cyber risk faced by their countries would be much lower than that for larger countries, such as the U.S. or Japan. This belief could be based simply on the number of reported cyber events and associated news coverage within their country. But recent cyberattacks have demonstrated that this view is mistaken. All countries face cyber risk, regardless of size. On August 25, 2020, the New Zealand Stock…

Japan Typhoon and Flood
New Insights Within the Japan Typhoon and Flood HD Model

Japan lies in the northern reaches of the most active tropical cyclone (typhoon) basin in the world; the western North Pacific. Aspects of Japan’s geography, not least its position, make it susceptible to typhoons. And as one of the world’s largest insurance markets, Japan has significant insured exposure at risk to typhoons. It is within this context that RMS has had a typhoon model for Japan for over 25 years—and have now launched our latest—the RMS Japan…

Japan Seismic Risk: Don’t Forget the Faults!

Japan and more specifically Tokyo lie at the intersection where the Pacific and Philippine Sea tectonic plates are pushed under Eurasia. It is not surprising then that megathrust earthquakes along these tectonic plate boundaries drive the seismic risk in this region with their large magnitudes and relatively short return periods. It is important to understand that the story of seismic risk does not end there. In Japan, like many other places around the world…

New Zealand Earthquake
New Zealand Earthquake: How the Last Decade Has Changed Everything

Go back to this time 10 years ago and earthquake risk in New Zealand was a relatively low priority for the global (re)insurance industry; a decade later, and this perspective has certainly changed. Insured losses of around NZ$40 billion (US$24.1 billion) came from the 2010-2011 Canterbury Earthquake Sequence (CES) and the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake; the former is the world’s second largest earthquake insured loss. These events had a considerable impact across…
