About this workshop

The cat insurance puzzle refers to the low or missing demand for high-severity-low-probability events, which is surprising given the high demand for low-value insurance products such as cell phone insurance policies. While the loss of a cellphone is usually an event of no or low consequence, the loss of a home to a family or a large property loss to a business owner can potentially be fatal. This talk will evaluate and discuss underlying reasons for this puzzle and suggest solutions for practice.
