Risk Frontiers is an independent research centre sponsored by the insurance industry to aid better understanding and pricing of natural hazard risks in the Asia-Pacific region. It was founded in 1994 to service the specialized needs of its sponsors in the local insurance and international reinsurance markets.  Its aims were to:

  • undertake risk assessment and research into natural hazards,
  • develop databases of natural hazards and their impacts on communities and
    insured assets, and
  • develop loss models to improve the pricing of natural hazard catastrophe risks.

These activities remain the core business of Risk Frontiers today, although it now undertakes studies on a much wider range of risk-related problems and for a client base that extends well beyond the insurance sector. It is the preferred provider of research to the NSW State Emergency Service and works with various government agencies and a number of corporate and utility organisations on risk-related issues. .  Read more.
