importance of risk management is significant to the understanding of emerging risks;
the development of emerging risks can affect the world’s economy. The landscape
of emerging risks is shifting more rapidly than ever; insurers and reinsurers
are developing integrated approaches to identifying and mitigating emerging
risks. The emerging risks today are assessed mainly as a reactionary approach
due to loss experiences; however, due to the faster pace of change, insurers
and reinsurers will require a more anticipatory approach to charting the rate
at which changes occurred in the past to create ways to develop pre-emptive
processes to manage such changes in the future.
anticipatory approach to identifying emerging risks in the future is difficult,
simply because the human mind is not conditioned to “think the unthinkable.”
Therefore, in risk management we are challenged by the limited reference point
of our experiences in trying to discover the unknown. From a risk management
viewpoint, the term “emerging risks” challenges us to identify, qualify, and
assess the probability of things beyond our experience. Although the challenges
pose certain risks to predictability, the probability of emerging risks helps
insurers and reinsurers to gain a perspective or an insight on how bad
something could be and how likely an event is to happen. If and when such an event
does happen, insurers and reinsurers can implement strategies for mitigating
emerging risks covers both unknown cost of known events or risks and unknown
cost of unknown risks, some experts may find it harder to imagine the unknown.
Here are some emerging risks that merit consideration:
three emerging risks listed above are emerging risks that have the propensity
to affect the world’s economy. The systematic cyber-attacks to financial
institutions could cause a global crisis risk to both emerging and developed
nations. The advent of cloud computing may be a way to mitigate the loss of
data and systems capabilities, but such systems are still vulnerable to
Arab Spring marked the turn of the political process for many of the Arab
nations to protest and to oust political regimes; this process has spread to
other parts of the world. The unthinkable here is: Could the process of pushing
political leaders out of office and removing the powers of government in this
fashion happen in America? The last sentence is an emerging risk factor that
may be unthinkable.
ever-changing and unpredictable change is evident; changes in the global
climate can create catastrophic destruction through natural disasters. We have
seen recent climate changes affect people and property in the Philippines with
Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, Super Storm Sandy throughout the East Coast in 2012, Haiti’s
earthquake in 2010, China’s earthquake in 2008, and Hurricane Katrina that
devastated New Orleans in 2005.
