Front cover of insurance use cases whitepaper

Flood losses have inundated re/insurers’ claims books, making this so-called ‘secondary’ peril very much a primary concern for risk carriers world-wide. Coupled with climate change and financial regulation the insurance sector is experiencing fast-evolving demand to quantify and evaluate this emerging risk. 

Insurers across all lines of business need to supplement historic claims data with high-quality flood hazard information to meet growing pressure to understand their exposure – for now and also in the future. 

This white paper demonstrates how Fathom’s Global Flood Map can strengthen insurers’ understanding of flood risk through scientifically reputable and transparent data. It explains the scientific underpinnings of Global Flood Map and presents use cases to illustrate its practical applications and benefits for underwriting and pricing across asset types, and for meeting regulatory mandates.
