The Geneva Association and the International Insurance Society (IIS) have announced the 2017 recipients of their collaborative insurance research program, the Shin Research Excellence Awards.

Thomas Holzheu and Ginger Turner of Swiss Re received the award for their paper on “The Natural Catastrophe Protection Gap”, following a comprehensive review led by The Geneva Association and IIS. The research will be presented during the IIS Global Insurance Forum in London on July 17th – 20th to more than 500 senior insurance leaders from around the world. It will also be published in The Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance and distributed by the IIS and The Geneva Association.

The Shin Research Excellence Awards program was established to promote practically-oriented, applied research in the field of insurance and risk management, addressing topics which directly influence business operations. The program, endowed by Kyobo Life Insurance Company and chaired by Blue Marble Microinsurance CEO, Dr. Joan Lamm-Tennant, fosters original research which is refereed by a panel of insurance experts and industry scholars.

Anna Maria D’Hulster, Secretary General of The Geneva Association said: “The increasing severity and frequency of weather-related catastrophes has led to enormous economic losses and human suffering. Societal resilience and loss mitigation requires the involvement and cooperation of multiple actors. The work of Mr. Holzheu and Ms. Turner advances the importance of cooperation amongst governments, the insurance sector, corporations and individuals. The award is a most appropriate recognition of their insights.”

“The steadily widening protection gap is an area where the insurance industry is poised to have significant impact,” said Michael J. Morrissey, IIS President and CEO. “Working collaboratively as an industry along with our public sector partners, there is considerable momentum and enormous potential to enhance communities’ resilience against climate risks, thereby protecting lives and livelihoods. Research is a critical underpinning of this effort.”

“The Shin Research program continues to expand in scope and impact, with many very impressive research studies submitted,” added Dr. Lamm-Tennant. “The Swiss Re team of researchers presented outstanding work which will aid in our industry’s efforts to mitigate loss associated with climate risks.”
