Cat losses estimated at $8.1 billion so far, says Macquarie
21 April 2017 | Sydney | Reporter: Becky Butcher
Macquarie Research’s catastrophe loss model estimates that losses for Q1 2017 currently stand at $8.1 billion, compared to $9.3 billion during the same period in 2016.

Of the total estimated losses this year, $1.3 billion relates to Cyclone Debbie, $1.1 billion to South American flooding, and $2.6 billion relates to severe weather in the US.

During the same period in 2016, the industry had already incurred more than $3.4 billion in losses from two severe storms in the US and $5.9 billion from the Japanese earthquakes, contributing to global insured catastrophe losses of $17 billion.

Macquarie said: “While it is still early in the year and catastrophe loss events can occur at any time, with little or no warning, 2017 has thus far been relatively calm.”

The research company added: “We consider recent year loss events such as Cyclone Debbie to be earnings, rather than capital event, assuring us that neither dividends nor share buybacks are in question. As such we reiterate our positive view of the reinsurance sector.”
