Catastrophe insurance is a kind of insurance that protects both commercial and residential sectors against natural disasters like floods and hurricanes, earthquakes, and man-made adversities such as terrorist attacks. Besides human fatalities, natural catastrophes also cause significant financial losses. This type of insurance is generally excluded from standard hazard insurance policies owing to its low-probability. Insurers adapt to uncertain catastrophic risks by increasing their insurance rates, which in turn leads to lower loss ratios post-catastrophic events. Catastrophic losses due to natural disasters are very problematic and complicated from an insurance standpoint. The firms with low levels of homeowners’ premiums are most adversely affected by the catastrophes.
