Título: Cyber insurance offering and performance : an analysis of the U.S cyber insurance market / Xiaoying Xie, Charles Lee, Martin ElingAutor: Xie, Xiaoying
Notas: Sumario: This article examines the determinants of cyber insurance participation, the amount of coverage offered and the performance of current cyber insurers. Our results support the competitive advantage hypothesis, but onlu partially support the business growth constraint hypothesis. We find that insurers offer cyber insurance to capitalise on their competitive advantage in understanding and pricing cyber risks. In particular, professional surplus insurers and insurers with surplus insurer affiliation demonstrate a competitive advantage in cyber insurance participation. We find limited evidence that insurers participate in cyber insurance to compensate for constraints on business growth. In addition, the type (standalone or packaged) and amount of coverage offered vary substantially across firm characteristics. Standalone coverage incurs higher loss ratios than packaged coverage, demonstrating its riskier nature. Changes in cyber insurance loss ratios are not driven by premium growth but by claim frequency and severity growth, emphasising the significance of cyber insurance policy design.Registros relacionados: En: Geneva papers on risk and insurance : issues and practice. - Geneva : The Geneva Association, 1976- = ISSN 1018-5895. - 01/10/2020 Volumen 45 Número 4 - octubre 2020 , p. 690-736Materia / lugar / evento: Mercado de seguros Seguro de ciberriesgos Empresas de seguros Seguro de daños patrimoniales Estados Unidos Otros autores: Lee, Charles
