This image explores how Swiss Re is using a data-driven approach to solve the big risk management issues.
It features the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. Swiss Re was instrumental in paying out claims following the Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. The event was an important early proof of Swiss Re‘s ability to help communities absorb the costs of large risks. The data overlay derives from Swiss Re’s “Mind the risk” publication, which set the standard for quantifying risks faced by megacities. This example ranks cities most at risk from earthquakes around the Pacific rim.
