we work with

We pride ourselves on the culture we have created in our business, working people-to-people and collaborating with a wide range of clients to achieve the best outcome for them. We believe in the importance of being open, approachable and responsive, which is why we’re always on hand to answer any questions our clients may have.

We work with lots of industries and clients, from insurers, reinsurers and resellers to the non-insurance sector, including governments, mortgage surveyors and property search companies, providing the best data for their individual needs.

Our flood maps, catastrophe models and analytics are used in underwriting, portfolio management, reinsurance pricing, property assessment and more, making us one of the leading providers of data to these industries.

Insurers

Our flood maps, pricing data (formerly known as Annual Damage Ratio data) and suite of catastrophe models are some of the leading sources of flood data in the insurance industry.

They are used at the point of underwriting for risk selection, pricing and accumulation management across the property market, from commercial and industrial properties to residential homes.

Our data allows you to identify the most profitable properties and set a technical price for flood at the location level.

Accumulation management, regulatory related exposure analysis, and portfolio stress testing against historical or realistic disaster scenario events are available via our catastrophe models.

Reinsurers

Our data is used by some of the world's largest reinsurers to manage their global flood risk.

Our catastrophe models and flood maps assist with reinsurance pricing and portfolio management, allowing you to manage your capital requirements and make informed decisions on portfolio planning and optimisation.

We collaborate with reinsurers to provide cutting edge model components, such as event sets, to develop bespoke catastrophe models.

Our maps and catastrophe models also assist in accumulation management, regulatory related exposure analysis, and portfolio stress testing against historical or realistic disaster scenario events.

Property Search and Mortgage Sectors

Our maps and analytics are utilised by the property search and mortgage sectors to assist with specific property assessments.

Our maps allow you to analyse at building and site level in order to gain a complete and consistent view of your client's flood exposure, based on high-resolution analysis and flood ratings derived from this. As many of the world's largest insurers underwrite against our data, it allows you to make a consistent decision in line with the rest of the industry for property purchase and mortgage considerations for your clients.

We also provide data to assist with asset screening in the utility and property development sector, enabling clients to manage the flood risk to their assets more effectively by providing high-resolution building level data.

Governments

Our flood maps and models have been used globally by government bodies, allowing them to manage this natural peril more effectively.

From state-led reinsurance initiatives and property planning applications to emergency preparation schemes and resource allocation, our data is used by government bodies to understand and mitigate their flood exposure.

Resellers

We work with a number of trusted resellers to bring our market-leading data to a wider client base.

We are always on hand to provide full technical advice and support to our clients and working with resellers allows us to get on with what we do best: developing leading flood maps and catastrophe models.

Resellers host our data for us, giving our clients easy access to our products and allowing them to make full use of our maps and models.
