Insured Losses From Natural Catastrophes Set to Top $100 Billion

Tom Metcalf and Marion Halftermeyer of Bloomberg report that insured losses from natural disasters are set to top $100 billion.

The C3 Take
  • Last year’s global insured losses topped $125 billion compared to an average cost of $81 billion over the past 10 years.
  • $5 billion of this estimate includes the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, although the total cost of these disasters is higher because much of the area was not insured.
  • More than two-thirds of insured losses were a result of thunderstorms in the United States.

“Munich Re has put the total global insured costs of natural-catastrophe events in the first half of 2023 at $43 billion, while Swiss Re has pegged it at $50 billion, according to a report by Bloomberg Intelligence.”
