CoreLogic Expands Flood, Hail and Lightning Solutions Into High-Demand Canadian Market


—Canadian carriers to benefit from enhanced flood, hail and lightning event and claims analysis—

CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, today announced the availability of its Canada Flood Risk Score and its Weather Verification Services for hail in Canada. The CoreLogic Flood Risk Score is a rating system based on over a decade of experience that helps insurers assess properties for potential flooding risk from riverine, flash and coastal flood events. As a result, insurers can streamline the underwriting process, mitigate loss, and provide appropriate premiums and deductibles based on a holistic assessment of risk. The CoreLogic Weather Verification Service for hail verifies the presence of hail at insured locations, allowing insurers to improve client satisfaction and build loyalty by settling claims more efficiently.

“Expanding our Flood Risk Score and Weather Verification for hail data into Canada allows our underwriter and carrier neighbors to the north to have the best of both worlds, providing full coverage for their clients while also underwriting policies that are smart for their book of business,” said Mark Drollinger, senior product manager at CoreLogic. “These easy-to-integrate, affordable solutions allow carriers to consume flood and hail event information for a specific location and ensure better policy and risk decisions can be made.”

Flood Risk Score for Canada

From 1900 to 2016, flooding in Canada has outranked all types of natural disaster events in both frequency and monetary losses (Source: Public Safety Canada), and those costs have only increased over the past 30 years. In response, carriers are beginning to provide flood insurance products to their customers and assuming more risk, but it can be costly and time consuming to develop a flood model in house. The CoreLogic Flood Risk Score for Canada, available through RiskMeter Online, was developed by PhD scientists who specialize in hydrology and algorithmic-based risk assessments. It provides the analytic capability to help customers identify flood risk for all flood hazard perils (riverine flood, flash flood, and coastal flood) across the Canada’s ten provinces and the entire risk spectrum, from small frequent floods to severe and catastrophic events. These capabilities can help better inform flood insurance pricing, flood risk mitigation, and flood risk communications. Scores are based on comprehensive hydrological technology, scientific datasets, and decades of experience in providing flood risk assessments.

As a result, insurers can quickly validate the presence of hail and date-of-loss thereby streamlining the claims process which can help greatly improve client satisfaction and loyalty.
