Manage UK Flood risk like never before

Flooding continues to pose a significant risk for re/insurers writing in the UK – now and under a changing climate. 

New JBA estimates suggest:

It’s vital that re/insurers start to understand this future risk, today.

Assessing potential future changes in risk and loss not only enables organisations to meet regulatory exercises, which require organisations to understand and own their view of risk better than ever before, but also to make effective business decisions now and in the future.

JBA has developed its newest UK Flood Model to meet these challenges – already the highest resolution model on the market and now the most flexible:

  • 5m resolution – highest resolution on the market for identifying localised risk at individual property and portfolio level, covering all three major flood types (river, surface water and coastal).
  • Underpinned by JBA’s modelling technology – almost every element of the model is user customisable, from hazard data to vulnerabilities and sensitivity testing.
  • Two new climate scenarios providing an intermediate and no-action warming scenario by 2050, developed using the latest UK Climate Projections and brand-new methodology to produce new, bigger, wetter events, rather than adjusting existing events.
  • Accessible in a variety of ways – underpinned by Oasis LMF and accessible via Nasdaq Risk Modelling for Catastrophes, ELEMENTS from Impact Forecasting’s team, in-house installations and JBA bespoke consultancy services.

Re/insurers can now understand, manage and quantify UK flood risk like never before.

The latest version of the model builds on over 10 years of flood modelling experience. Its predecessor, released in 2018, was industry used and approved as the model of choice for three of the world's top reinsurance brokers and used by financial organisations across the UK to meet CBES requirements.

Using the baseline model alongside the climate scenarios, users can understand both their risk today and how losses and flood risk may change over time. This helps with:

  • Competitive reinsurance pricing
  • Geographical hotspot identification
  • Informed portfolio management and optimisation
  • Effective accumulation and capital management
  • Long-term competitive product development
  • In-depth ‘what if’ investigation
  • Transparent regulatory reporting
