Topics Risk Solutions 2/2014

The insurance industry is at times accused of doing too little in the way of innovation. In this issue, we are pleased to be able to cite further counterexamples. One of these is especially important for the life science branch, because, with this product, we are extending the limits of insurability: For the first time, we are able to offer coverage for the risk of business interruption with no prior property loss. Now, companies can insure the financial risk of a supplychain breakdown caused by changing regulatory provisions and protect their balance sheet, share price and rating.

The two other innovations primarily involve risk management. NATHAN offers flood models of a precision that is unique on the market and HSB makes it easier to calculate the power outage risk.
