Hurricane Aftermath Seminar

HFW is pleased to be hosting a seminar looking at the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey


4 October 2017




Some local estimates of Hurricane Harvey losses (insured and uninsured) now exceed US$200bn. Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade, is estimated by some to have caused losses of US$300bn. In view of the unprecedented nature of these catastrophes, and the evolving understanding of their impact, HFW invites you to a presentation and Q&A session to discuss the insurance and reinsurance aspects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. HFW's Houston office has, over the last 15 years, handled up to 10,000 insurance claims arising out of hurricane, tornado, flood, hail and storm events in the US South West. HFW's London office has, over the last 25 years, handled insurance and reinsurance issues arising out of Hurricanes Katrina/Wilma/Rita, Thai floods, Queensland/NSW/Victoria floods, and other natural disasters. During this seminar, our expert speakers will be able to share their expertise and knowledge of how to deal with the insurance and reinsurance issues caused by these devastating Hurricanes.
