Abstract

Catastrophes are by definition rare, which makes it difficult to project future losses using historical loss information. Catastrophe modelers have developed alternative methodologies based on sophisticated techniques that combine physics, meteorology, engineering, statistics, actuarial sciences, and other disciplines to provide estimates of the likelihood of losses from extreme events. This article discusses the basics of catastrophe modeling and describes an approach to implementing a lesson on catastrophe modeling in the insurance curriculum.
