Natural Hazards

Natural hazards such as earthquakes, hurricanes, hail, and floods can have a profound impact on a business. But while such risks are unpredictable, they can be managed.

Through a combination of innovative risk mitigation and risk transfer, a company can exercise optimum control over its property exposures.

Marsh's Risk Consulting Practice helps companies manage the risks associated with natural disaster by analyzing and modeling how an event can affect a single facility and then ripple through the enterprise's operations. By qualifying and quantifying potential risks, we develop comprehensive plans for mitigating exposures and applying the appropriate operational, financial, and strategic risk management techniques.
