"Returning to the Top"

The theme of the 6th NAMS Advanced Asset Management Forum is ‘Returning to the Top’. The theme challenges us to define where NZ sits in terms of leading Asset Management practice, where we should be and what excellence in Asset Management will look like in future.  We are seeking papers which will stimulate, challenge and expand the thinking in line with the conference sub themes. We strongly encourage all of the asset management sector to attend, government, commercial, corporate, industrial, utilities, financial institutions, consultancies

NAMS Insuring Public Infrastructure Assets Against Damage Caused by Natural Disaster Events

This document is a general guide about what to consider when valuing assets for natural disaster insurance purposes.  The general principles outlined here will apply to all types of entities responsible for managing public infrastructure.

It is noted that this guide only covers the management of financial risks associated with natural disaster events.  This guide needs to be considered within the context of a wider risk management framework/strategy for the organisation.  This would include the identification of all risks, the organisation’s appetite for risk, avoidance measures and mitigation techniques – not just covering the financial risk by insurance.
