GLOBAL INSURANCE LEADERS DISCUSS MITIGATION, BEST PRACTICES, AND LESSONS LEARNED FROM RECENT NATURAL CATASTROPHE ACTIVITY AT LLOYD'S

Leading Catastrophe Reinsurer Hosts Forum "Improving Natural Catastrophe Resiliency: Insurance vs Intervention"

In light of the rise in natural catastrophe events occurring during the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, approximately 100 leading insurance industry experts, policy makers, scientists and environmentalists gathered at Lloyd's of London on November 29, 2017 to discuss strategies for improving natural catastrophe resiliency and closing the protection coverage gap at the "Improving Natural Catastrophe Resiliency: Insurance vs Intervention" forum sponsored by one of the world's leading catastrophe reinsurers, RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: RNR) (the "Company" or "RenaissanceRe"). The forum covered a number of important issues raised by the recent rise in hurricanes, earthquakes, wild fires and other events, including the importance of promoting resiliency before the inevitable next storm; the role of risk-based insurance rates in consumer decision-making; the positive incentives working to drive mitigation efforts in urban environments; and the role of the private sector in boosting rebuilding and local economies following a disaster.

Leadership Forum Speakers, pictured left to right, are John M. Huff, Former Director of the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration and Immediate Past President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC); Kevin O'Donnell, President and CEO, RenaissanceRe; Aidan Kerr, Director of Operations, Flood Re and Stephen Weinstein, Chairman, RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation.
