Natural Catastrophe

Natural Catastrophes

Rising NatCat activity in recent years (i.e., flooding, storms, hail, and wildfires), also driven by climate change, creates challenges for the re/insurance industry. In addition, insured values in regions exposed to natural catastrophes are rising steadily. At Gen Re, an experienced team with a long-standing history in underwriting and own risk models will help you meet your reinsurance and business objectives.

We use a tailored approach that ranges from evaluating and selecting from the available vendor products to a pure proprietary model development to adequately address each country and peril in our client portfolios.

Furthermore, our geoscientists (e.g., Meteorologists, Hydrologists, Seismologists) make use of the latest research and data to respond to the highly dynamic environment where a changing climate and rapid urbanization challenge the value of historic observations.


We offer reinsurance solutions across a broad range of Ocean and Inland Marine exposures. To succeed in today's rapidly changing global environment, our teams combine global expertise with local know-how.

Our product offerings include Ocean Cargo, Commercial Hull (Ocean/River), Yachts, Builders Risk, and Marine Liabilities.
