Abstract

Today's advances in big data technologies readily allow for storing large inter-dependent data sets of historical and modeled natural hazard and financial data and unifying their granularity and accuracy with common geo-spatial and risk-type record identifiers. This is a significant component at both single insurance account, and even more so at the larger multi-policy portfolio scale for enabling optimal and socially responsible insurance underwriting practices. This supports insurance risk transfers by creating more accurate and all-uncertainty encompassing pricing techniques, and exposes these techniques and methodologies to all market players, including insurance policy holders via transparent statistical and actuarial principles.
