Chart: Chile Holds Spot on Most Expensive Earthquakes for Insurers

Posted at 1:00 AM ET

In light of last week’s 8.2 magnitude earthquake in Chile we highlight a spring 2013 GC Capital Ideas table ranking the most expensive earthquakes for insurers. A seismic event in 2010 put the South American nation on that list.

As reported in GC Analytics’ CAT-i report, a full assessment of the scope and severity of the impacts of the recent quake has yet to emerge, but initial reports do not indicate damage of exceptional severity to resilient structures. At least six fatalities have been reported. It also created a tsunami wave of 6.9 feet, which produced tsunami warnings as far away as Hawaii, Japan and Indonesia.
