The author reflects on the strategic risks facing the business insurance industry. He states that if climate change is the most important strategic risk facing insurers, to him that presupposes a direct connection between what is happening in the environment and occurrences that insurers cover. He argues that regulatory and compliance risk was the top strategic risk for businesses in general and, admittedly, could have a huge short-term impact.
