February 2020 saw the inaugural London Catastrophe Modelling Awards: an informal, free-to-attend, not-for-profit event, organised by volunteers and for 2022 The London Catastrophe Modelling Awards are back!
Time once again to celebrate the contribution of the best individuals working in catastrophe modelling in the U.K.
Nominations are now closed!
However, tickets are now available (password: CatAwards2022)!
Get your thinking caps on and decide whom you think should be nominated for one of 10 industry awards. These are below, including sponsors - where confirmed:
• Best newcomer (2-3 years established) [Sponsored by Guy Carpenter]
• Lifetime achievement / important contribution award [RMS]
• Best piece of research / evaluation / validation in the last two years [Oasis]
• Best broking analyst [AXA XL]
• Best underwriting analyst [Gallagher Re]
• Industry collaboration champion [Verisk Extreme Event Solutions]
• Leadership award [CoreLogic]
• Resilience & sustainability award [Renaissance Re]
• Diversity & inclusion award [Willis Towers Watson]
• Best modelling company client representative / manager [Aon]
The key aim is to continue highlighting and celebrating the work done by the large catastrophe modelling community that is approaching 30 years old in London and central to most re/insurance companies in the London Market - and yet rarely sees its employees recognised. Nominations are voted upon by a panel that includes each award's sponsor rather than making the awards a popularity contest.
Given the success of the evening, with nearly 200 attendees, we hope that this will now be a yearly event.
