Join the Minnesota Center for Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, UMN School of Mathematics (MCFAM) on Thursday, October 8 at 5:30 p.m. (CST) for the first lecture of the 2020-21 MCFAM Distinguished Lecture Series. Hear from Dr. Vijay Manghnani, actuary, quant finance practitioner and meterologist, on climate change and insurance.
In response to the significant earnings and capital impacts of such extreme climate change related events, the financial industry has evolved over the past 3 decades, a fairly robust toolkit to assess physical climate risks using sophisticated catastrophe risk models. Learn how these models can help assess physical climate risks in insurance portfolios and how a similar approach might be adapted for broader finance portfolios.
