Insured losses in 2014 were at the lowest level seen since 2009, according to Guy Carpenter’s annual Global Catastrophe Review. The report says that significant insured losses in 2014 totaled approximately USD33 billion, a dramatic drop when compared to the historic insured losses seen in 2011, which totaled approximately USD126 billion.“Although insured losses for 2014 were among the lowest recorded in years, we still observed powerful impacts and significant losses from both natural and man-made catastrophes,” said James Waller, Ph.D, Research Meteorologist at GC Analytics©.
