Record losses of $13B across California

2017 was a catastrophic year for wildfires across the United States, particularly in the Napa/Sonoma area and in Southern California. Over 10 million acres burned in total, and countless lives and property were lost. Unlike other natural hazards which may not occur every year, wildfire damage is expected annually—the only questions are where and to what extent.

These catastrophic losses underscore the need to quantify risk potential to support risk transfer requirements and capital adequacy for insurers.

Don’t play with fire

The U.S. Wildfire Model includes robust hazard definition, comprehensive agents of damage, local vulnerability functions, variable import resolution, detailed financial modeling, flexible reporting, and expert review.

Both burn and smoke damage is accounted for, and more than 3.5 million stochastic events are incorporated.

  • Account for both burn and smoke damage
  • Support a full range of structure types and accounts for roof types and perimeter clearance
  • Account for variations in fuel loads with Adjustable Hazard
  • Make decisions knowing your data is validated with claims data from historical events
