Looking for flood risk data solutions?

Assess flood risk more accurately and reduce unexpected losses

National and international underwriters, brokers, reinsurers and risk managers use our flood maps, data sets and flood catastrophe models to assess flood risk and predict probable losses more accurately. With greater knowledge and more precise flood risk information you can minimise unforeseen losses and price competitively, quickly and confidently. We can provide data through different user levels and delivery mechanisms, including an interactive online system, a .pdf report or a simplified flood risk score for individual properties.

Our flood maps and data sets help insurers and risk managers:

  • Evaluate flood risk virtually anywhere in the UK and Australia
  • Predict probable losses more accurately (our FloodScore models offer 85%+ reliability)
  • Develop more realistic and competitive pricing

More precise pricing and loss estimates with FloodScore

Our national FloodScoreTM models are proven to predict risk with around 85%+ reliability and provide a straightforward guide to flood risk in specific areas, right down to individual property level. They’re incorporated into standard underwriting processes and used to support in-house analytics and bespoke underwriting projects.

Built using our world-class flood modelling technology, they provide insurers with clear, detailed and easy-to-understand flood information for all major floodwater sources. We optimise our flood maps and flood risk data sets for insurers by:

  • Using the highest resolution data available to let you predict flooding at property level for a range of return periods
  • Making our data easy to integrate with underwriting pricing systems
  • Making it easy to combine vulnerability data and depth-to-damage curves to estimate loss more accurately
  • Developing new approaches to resolve off-floodplain risk

 

Our pricing structure is flexible and affordable, with the annual cost generally less than the average cost of a single residential claim.

Assess portfolio-wide exposure and correlated flood risk

We developed our flexible flood catastrophe (FloodCat) models to give reinsurers and risk managers precise data about their overall exposure in the event of a catastrophic flood. They enable you to rapidly assess portfolio-wide risk and make better decisions around capital allocation.

Following the 2007 flood in Hull, the Association of British Insurers and the UK Environment Agency asked us to conduct research to determine best practice in predicting flooding in urban environments.
