Margaret H. Warner was quoted on February 4 by Law360 in an article regarding whether federal funding should be provided for national catastrophe funds. Ms. Warner noted that the idea of a fund draws from an age-old insurance concept. "Any insurance-related mechanism is about spreading the risk. By definition, there is always going to be some type of subset subsidizing some others. That is the very nature of spreading the risk," she said. She added that because catastrophes are unusual, they may require an unusual solution. "There certainly are many unique aspects of catastrophes, and absolutely the extent of the resources that are called upon in these situations make it important to do things outside the norm. We have to find a mechanism to handle these large catastrophe situations so that there can still be an incentive to do business in some of these prone locations," she said.
