PERILS, using its professional judgment and in its sole discretion, identifies and designates an unique PERILS event identification number, an event name, an event start and end date as well as a classification of the event according to the prevailing cause of the insured losses (storm, flood or earthquake). In making these judgments, PERILS considers factors such as objective scientific data, event identification by governmental or scientific authorities, as well as information received from the data providing insurance companies and the likely prevailing event definition used by reinsurance buyers and sellers.
While efforts are being made to keep this web site helpful and accurate, all information provided below is subject to change without notice.
When an event has been classified as a Europe Windstorm, UK Flood, Italy Earthquake or Italy Flood, Turkey Earthquake or Turkey Flood event – and it has the potential to cause in the countries covered by PERILS a property loss of more than EUR 200m (Europe Windstorm, UK Flood) or to have a significant impact on the Italian or Turkish property insurance industry (Earthquake and Flood) – the event will be investigated to establish whether the insured loss threshold has been exceeded (Status: ‘Under Investigation’).
If the investigation shows that the event will not exceed the loss threshold then PERILS will close the investigation (Status: ‘Non-qualifying Event’).
If the investigation confirms that the event is likely to exceed the threshold, PERILS will capture all relevant data from the event and produce reports in line with the PERILS reporting schedule (Status: ‘Qualifying Event’).
