"I actually think the program segment is, in many cases, on the forefront of innovation and recognizing emerging risks," said David Brown, senior vice president of Specialty Markets. "This is mainly because in that specialty niche space and that program space, the MGAs and program administrators sell more than just the product."

Most companies are unprepared for the emergence of autonomous vehicles (AVs), according to corporate risk managers surveyed by Munich Re at the 2016 Risk and Insurance Management Society Conference (RIMS). Despite the potential business impact of this technology, a majority (65 percent) of risk managers surveyed said their companies have done nothing to prepare for the emergence of AVs in the auto market. Of those who have taken some form of action to prepare, 23 percent have discussed the new technology internally, eight percent have established a task force and four percent have created an operational plan.

Munich Re's Mark Bove, Senior Research Meteorologist, talks about the record flooding in Houston: "A stationary area of low pressure over the American Southwest caused record flooding in Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the United States. The low's counter-clockwise circulation drew in tremendous amounts of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, and its lack of movement allowed for heavy rainfall to continually move over the same region, causing localized one-day rainfall totals in excess of 17 inches." "The city of Houston is no stranger to severe flood events. With a limitless reservoir of moisture available from the nearby Gulf of Mexico, the city has experienced severe flooding in all seasons from several different types of weather systems. Tropical Storm Claudette in 1979 still holds the record for 24-hour rainfall in the region, with 43" of rain observed in Alvin, TX. Recently, severe flood events have become more frequent in the Houston area. Tropical Storm Allison in 2001 inundated Houston with 35" of rain over a five-day period, and three non-tropical cyclone-related rain events inundated wide swaths of the city in 2006, 2009, and 2015. The increase in severe flood frequency in the Houston metropolitan area since 2000 is partly due to continued suburban and exurban growth in the city, as pavement blocks the normal drainage of rainfall into the ground. However, since a warm atmosphere can hold more moisture, climate change could also be influencing the frequency of extreme precipitation events like those witnessed in Houston this week."

TOPICS Geo 2015 - 2015 was another year in which losses from natural catastrophes remained fairly low. In fact, overall losses and insured losses were even below the 30-year average. The natural "climate oscillation" El Niño had a marked influence on the patterns of weather-related events, and was partly responsible for the low level of hurricane activity in the North Atlantic. The current issue of Topics Geo provides the facts and figures behind the year's events and analyses the processes that caused them. View publication: http://bit.ly/21HkigA
