Guaranteed home asset worths continues to broaden at a rate typically quicker than GDP growth despite the impacts of the pandemic and the economic downturns it has caused worldwide, according to PERILS AG.In releasing the most recent update to its industry amounts guaranteed information set, containing exposures as at an in-force date of 1st January 2021, PERILS notes that once again European windstorm direct exposures remain the biggest direct exposure in the database.

Thats a slowdown in Euro value growth, as the prior years update of the industry direct exposure database showed a 4% increase in European windstorm sums insured.
Insurance and reinsurance market direct exposure to European windstorm threats stays especially significant and its an essential hazard in the European marketplace.

We are as constantly really grateful to our insurance partners in Australia and New Zealand who have been extremely supportive in offering us with their most updated info.”
