In 2012, a group of researchers had a discussion about some of the major obstacles that needed to be overcome in the field of flood modelling and, subsequently, set about trying to solve them.
They discussed the best ways to make cutting-edge methods of flood risk modelling more widely available.
By 2013, this conversation had led to the formation of Fathom. Our aim was to become a leading research-led company, providing transparent and world-leading methods wherever they are required.
Since then, the company has grown significantly and now works with (re)insurers, international development agencies, conservation agencies, emergency responders and multi-national corporations on a global basis.
Academic research remains as important to us now as when we started. In the face of the increasing challenges posed by climate change, this commitment ensures we are providing our customers and partners with market-leading flood models based on the latest science.
