On May 23, 2019, Jason Reeves and Deepa Sutherland of Zelle International will co-present an LMA Academy Masterclass titled “Climate Change: Insurance and Reinsurance.” 

This masterclass will consider the impact of climate change on insurance and reinsurance. 

The presenters will: 

  • review historical and current climate change litigation and consider emerging exposures
  • review active US and foreign climate change litigation
  • discuss specific business line risks
  • comment on the use of event attribution science
  • consider lessons learned from past long tail liability exposures (MTBE, asbestos)
  • outline subrogation and recovery opportunities
  • review wording suggestions and new business line opportunities

Attendees will gain a better understanding of climate change in the context of insurance, which will be useful in anticipating and mitigating emerging exposures, improving wordings, and developing new products.
