Catastrophe Models

We are the first to offer probabilistic catastrophe modelling for flood on a truly global scale. Working with the insurance and property industries, governments and financial institutions, we help our clients to understand, manage and quantify flood risk across the world

Our Catastrophe Models Give You A Consistent View Of Flood Risk

At JBA, we’ve developed a cutting-edge methodology to enable probabilistic flood modelling anywhere in the world, for the first time.

Our catastrophe modelling enables users to understand the frequency, severity and spatial correlations of flood risk across the entire risk transfer chain, allowing clients to make informed decisions.

Using the latest science and research, our flood models facilitate capital allocation, accumulation control, reinsurance pricing and portfolio management.

With the ability to model correlation between multiple flood types and fully adjust all model data, parameters and assumptions to their own needs through our revolutionary FLY technology, clients can be confident that they have a full understanding of their exposure to flood risk.

We also offer a leading multi-peril crop model for India to help global re/insurers participating in the crop industry better understand and manage the risk from multiple extreme weather perils.

We are committed to finding the right solution for all our clients and can provide a bespoke consultancy service to provide guidance on the right modelling approach to suit individual needs.

For more details on our models and how we can help you, please get in touch today.

Our market-leading models capture sources of loss from river, surface water and coastal flooding.

Our sophisticated event sets give you a global view of flood loss assessments.
