Further information on the specific risks facing insurers and re-insurers is available under relevant expertise headings in the site menu.
Newrisk Limited's principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, commenced her career in catastrophic risk when a severe hailstorm disaster devastated part of Toowoomba, an inland city in Australia. Dr Leivesley was appointed as coordinator of this pioneering disaster recovery effort, which was established by the Queensland State Government and she reported to the Cabinet on the city's recovery over a period of five months. In this time she worked closely with the insurance industry for a speedy recovery of households in the city and recovery of special interest groups (such as farms that had lost crops as a result of the severe hail).
Dr Leivesley has also worked for the insurance sector by providing exercises on catastrophic risk to international corporations under threat of terrorism. These exercises included corporations pre-emptively preparing for recovery and the development of special skills for recovery and risk management. Operational risk assessments formed part of these major business disruption incident exercises, along with crisis response, business continuity planning, role-playing presentations to the board of directors and a debriefing session.
Newrisk Limited has previously provided lectures, conference papers, workshops and publications on insurance issues. Further information on these lectures, conference papers, workshops and publications is available by following this link.
