Attention will be given to the difficulties in estimating probabilities and consequences of these events and how ambiguity affects insurer and reinsurer decision processes. Special attention will be given to the role of quantitative models and scenario analysis for aiding insurers and reinsurers in their rate estimation process and their determination of coverage limits.
