Swiss Re's Natural Catastrophes Insured Loses
Natural catastrophes caused an estimated USD 115 billion of insured losses in 2022 to date, coming in well above the 10-year average of USD 81 billion.
Hurricane Ian was the single largest loss-causing event of the year to date, with an estimated insured loss of USD 50–65 billion.
Secondary perils such as floods and hail storms caused over USD 50 billion insured losses, yet again affirming their significant contribution to the global total.
