Versicherer erwarten weniger Schäden durch Hagupit

10.12.2014 – taifunDer Taifun Hagupit ist am Wochenende über die Philippinen gezogen. Allerdings umfassen nur etwa 15 bis 20 Prozent der Immobilienversicherungen auch den Schutz gegen Taifun-Risiko. Dennoch gehen die Versicherer davon aus, dass die Schäden durch Hagupit niedriger ausfallen werden als beim Taifun Haiyan im Jahr 2013.

Asia Insurance Review says:

“The year 2014 would have been a very good year for non-life insurance companies. That is, if Ruby (alternative name for Hagupit) did not enter the picture,” the Philippine Inquirer reported, citing a statement issued by the Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association (PIRA). “Though this may not be exactly like Yolanda, still we are preparing for huge claims,” PIRA Chairman Emmanuel Que said.

Last year, non-life companies paid PHP 15 billion (337 mio. dollar) in insured losses in the wake of Haiyan which was the strongest storm ever recorded on land, with winds of 315km/h.

Michael Rellosa, PIRA deputy chairman, said that less than 20% of the country’s 100 million people have some insurance coverage. The estimate is down to 5% in rural areas such as those in Eastern Visayas. His comments were reported on the Rappler social news website. (vwh/td)
