Seismic shock: a new earthquake model for the Middle East

Source(s):  Lloyd's

The model described in this report uses the latest data and new modelling techniques to provide a much-needed, additional earthquake model for the region that is different from others on the market. For insurance to play its full potential in mitigating and transferring earthquake risk in the Middle East, insurers need better earthquake models for the region.

Developed in partnership with CATRisk Solutions and the Lloyd's market, it uses a bespoke seismotectonic source model that generates thousands of earthquake scenarios to give a more accurate assessment of earthquake risk in Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
