Swiss Re estimates its third quarter claims burden from large natural catastrophes at USD 1.1 billion; large man-made losses to be an additional USD 300 million

18 October 2018 Swiss Re

Swiss Re estimates its preliminary claims burden from recent natural catastrophes amount to approximately USD 1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2018, net of retrocession and before tax.

  • Swiss Re estimates its preliminary combined claims burden from recent large natural catastrophes at approximately USD 1.1 billion, net of retrocession and before tax, dominated by weather-related losses in Japan
  • In addition, large man-made catastrophe events are expected to lead to a pre-tax claims burden of approximately USD 300 million
  • While the third quarter losses are large for an individual quarter for Swiss Re, the cumulative losses for the first nine months are broadly in line with year-to-date expectations

QUESTION

No developing economy has ever built a single-payer complementary NHI equivalent covering the entire population. NHI promises comprehensive care but it is also 100% free at the point-of-service. Is this practical?

ANSWER

It is doable but collaboration is key
South Africa is not in a position to build NHI
The only conclusion possible is that the private healthcare sector is not going to disappear or change
There is little chance that the NHI will be able to receive significant government funding
