IRVINE, Calif., January 10, 2021 — CoreLogic, a leading global property data and analytics-driven solutions provider, has been selected to expand the Hail Protection product designed by AXA Climate. With the help of CoreLogic’s proprietary data, the product is designed to help businesses recover from financial losses such as property damage or business interruption following a hail event. After a successful initial launch of the parametric hail product in 2019, AXA Climate will bring the solution to condominiums, golf courses and greenhouses, among others.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 18 billion-dollar disasters have hit the U.S. so far in 2021. Seven of these events included episodes of severe hail. With large losses due to hail occurring each year, insureds are experiencing a hardening market with higher deductibles and premiums.
“AXA Climate constantly strives to streamline its user experience and reduce any potential basis risk in its parametric offers. Working with CoreLogic allows us to do both,” added Antoine Denoix, CEO of AXA Climate. “Hail is our starting point, but we see the potential to collaborate further with CoreLogic to support actors engaged in sustainable transitions.”
When an insured experiences a hail event, CoreLogic uses its proprietary technology to capture the event and report the maximum hail size at the insured location and the surrounding area. This Hail Verification Report is then the reference in determining if a parametric policy has triggered. No loss adjustment is needed as payouts are pre-defined with the insured as a function of the maximum hail size declared in the Hail Verification Report.
“CoreLogic is powering AXA Climate to make better decisions in parametric policy through data-driven insights in hail location and severity,” said Mick Noland, managing director, CoreLogic. “CoreLogic can help AXA Climate enable shorter cycle times for policyholders, all while helping those policyholders find, buy and protect the homes and businesses they love.”
AXA Climate is a managing general agent of the global insurance and reinsurance group AXA.
