Modelling Climate Litigation Risk for (Re)Insurers

  2023-08-30 (or before) by in Columbia Law School

Customers, as well as regulators and shareholders, are eager to see insurers provide more products and services that respond to the “greening” of the global economy, expand their efforts to improve disaster resilience and otherwise be proactive about the...
