Fewer severe natural disasters in the first half of the year

11 Jul 2018, Munich Re

The first half of 2018 was fortunate in that natural disasters across the world caused significantly lower losses than usual. According to provisional figures, overall losses were around US$33bn, the lowest level since 2005. However, individual events did cause high losses for those concerned, and the second half of the year usually brings higher losses.
