What is a catastrophe risk management professional?
Catastrophe risk managers utilize a range of risk management tools to assess potential losses caused by natural and man-made catastrophes. Catastrophe models are also used to assess potential future losses from high severity, low frequency events that have not occurred in the recent past but could occur in the future. Traditionally used in the insurance/reinsurance industry to manage and prepare for disasters, this profession is seeing increased penetration into business and government agencies as the need to better manage risk increases (especially from climate change).
