306 - What Actuaries Should Know About Climate Change

Climate-related risks arise when various direct and indirect climate-related impacts affect the physical resources or assets of individuals or entities. When climate impacts also interact with various socioeconomic systems, the result may disrupt the mechanisms traditionally used to maintain financial stability. To an actuary that means assumptions may change or may need further disclosure, especially with growing regulator focus and the focus on climate-related financial disclosures across many insurance and financial services industries. The panelists cover the Actuaries Climate Index (ACI); discuss the Actuaries Climate Risk Index (ACRI); highlight the evolution of actuarial research on these topics including six climate issue papers promulgated by the International Actuarial Association; and explain what actuaries from all disciplines need to know about climate change including disclosures proposed or considered by various regulators.
