Background

As demand grows within the insurance industry to quantify and evaluate flood risk more accurately, Swiss Re’s Reinsurance Solutions announces the launch of Fathom’s US Flood Map within CatNet. 

The new dataset, available for Premium customers, offers users the ability to uniquely identify and visualize flood hazards anywhere in the world. The collaboration marks a significant milestone in enhancing CatNet’s existing flood modeling resources and supplies clients with the highest quality dynamic flood risk assessments.

For insurers already using CatNet®, you can reach out to your account manager directly to gain access to our hazard information via the platform.

Whereas those who do not currently use the platform but would like to know more can register their interest here. 

As Anil Vasagiri, Swiss Re Head Property Solutions explains:

“Reinforcing CatNet®’s existing flood risk modelling resources with Fathom’s US Flood Map supports insurers and companies to create more sophisticated climate-driven flood risk scenarios, instead of relying on historical data alone. The ability to view multiple flood-risk models on a single platform enables simultaneous comparisons, leading to more comprehensive risk assessments.”

Ultimately empowering insurers across the entire business to:

— Drive profitable growth: Competitive advantage for risk selection, pricing and underwriting. 

— Make renewal decisions: Improved portfolio management at a global scale.

— Improved resilience: Comprehensively assess changes in future risk.
