Catastrophe Models

We are a leading provider of global flood risk catastrophe modelling, working with the insurance and property industries, governments and financial institutions to quantify and understand their flood risk across the world.

Our Catastrophe Models Give You A Consistent View Of Flood Risk

Our cutting-edge probabilistic catastrophe models and global event sets utilise the latest science and research to facilitate capital allocation, accumulation control, reinsurance pricing and underwriting and portfolio management.

Our unique and flexible approach to building models enables us to meet modelling needs globally, while working in collaboration with clients to satisfy their individual needs. Our catastrophe models enable users to understand the frequency, severity and spatial correlations of flood risk across the entire risk transfer chain, allowing them to make informed decisions and see the benefit of intelligent underwriting in accumulation assessments.

With the ability to model correlation between multiple perils, the facility to adjust model parameters to their own needs, and the choice of which platform to use, users can be confident that they have a full understanding of their risk exposure.

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.
