Gallagher Re publishes Natural Catastrophe Report 2022 and Global InsurTech Report Q4 2022

2 February 2023

Hurricane Ian flooded houses in Florida residential area. Natural disaster and its consequences.

In the new Natural Catastrophe Report 2022 from ICMIF Supporting Member Gallagher Re, readers will find a summary of the major catastrophe events that occurred in each region around the globe in 2022, detailing the financial loss, fatalities and other major considerations.

Throughout 2022, the world saw another year of impactful natural catastrophe events that once again brought into focus the need to better account for the growing risks these hazards bring, says the report. The challenges brought by climate change, inflation, social inflation, claims litigation, and further exposure growth into vulnerable areas for disaster risk only further enhanced the resultant impacts seen.

Readers of this report can expect to:

  • Explore overview of global and regional catastrophe hazard and loss drivers
  • Learn which regions have undergone higher annual losses
  • Better understand climate change influence on individual behaviour and impacts
