Webinar: On-Demand Catastrophe Modelling Services for Three Major U.S. Perils — Earthquake, Hurricane, and Flood

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at Noon - 1 p.m. ET

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at Noon – 1 p.m. ET

In a complimentary AM Best webinar sponsored by Xceedance, a panel of experts will discuss the technical advances of three key U.S. peril models (Earthquake, Hurricane, and Flood) and describe pioneering, on-demand risk- and loss-analysis services, based on those models.

The panel will examine how re/insurers and brokers can get a credible view of their risks by identifying new or hidden loss drivers. Webinar participants will gain perspective on cost-effectively pricing key U.S. catastrophe risks with more confidence, using a combination of advanced models and associated on-demand services in conjunction with the Oasis Loss Modelling Framework.

Panelists include:

Justin Davies, Senior Vice President at Xceedance, is tasked with building the company’s brand and expanding the team in the EMEA region.

For the past seven years, he has been the ARA program manager for disaster and failure studies and community resilience support services for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Andrew Smith is one of the co-founders and directors at Fathom. He completed a Ph.D. under Professor Paul Bates, and during this time, the idea of founding a company first emerged — resulting in a change of research focus from climate change impact studies to the development of large-scale flood models, and leading to numerous publications in this field. Andrew is COO at Fathom and continues to publish extensively in the field of flood hazard and risk modelling.
