Howden Tiger Appoints Chief Science Officer


“Inflation volatility, climate change, the net-zero transition, civil unrest and war, are defining a risk environment that has become more difficult to predict” says Bhaskar Chattaraj, Howden Tiger’s newly appointed Chief Science Officer (SCO).


“At the same time,” he went on, “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are unlocking new ways to collect, analyse and utilise catastrophe, weather and geo-spatial data. Seizing this opportunity with state-of-the-art risk management solutions will enable our clients to construct more robust, more profitable portfolios – and ensure that Howden Tiger remains at the forefront of underwriting innovation.” 


Chattaraj is a highly experienced researcher in the field. He joined the business in 2009 and later served as Head of Cat Modelling and Research & Development (R&D) before starting his newly created role of CSO at the beginning of 2024. He brings to the position over 25 years’ experience in building and implementing cutting-edge risk management solutions, at a time when the latest developments in AI and machine learning are rapidly redefining how the re/insurance industry can model, monitor, and manage risk.
