How Can We Help You?

From storm and fire hazards to land-based events such as sinkholes and earthquakes to crime risk, we’ve got you covered!

Flooding is the #1 Natural Disaster in the United States

Water is a peril that is uniquely able to affect every location. Anticipating your water risk and predicting loss requires you to understand the details, like water flow and surrounding vegetation. Our models and scoring look at current and historical weather events, giving you the insight to take the guesswork out of knowing the condition of properties and the risk they face. Intelligence reports include:

  • Flood Risk Score
  • Flash Flood Risk Score
  • Distance to Coast
  • Hail Risk
  • Sewer Back-Up Score
  • Storm Surge Risk Score

The Majority of Underinsurance in the United States Involves Earthquake Risk

According to the sigma study from Swiss Re, the United States has the most uninsured losses of any country. Underinsurance of natural catastrophe risk has risen steadily, and the majority of it involves earthquake risk. As insurers look to close the underinsurance gap, they need to pinpoint risk to establish more adequate premiums. Our intelligence reports include:

  • Earthquake Risk
  • US, Canada, Italy, & Japan
  • Sinkhole Risk and Mine Subsidence

Look Beyond Tornadoes to Understand Your Wind Risk

In 2018, over 1.7 million square miles saw severe (>60 mph) wind gusts in 2018, and 21,000 square miles saw very severe wind gusts (>80 mph).

Understanding the risk associated with thunderstorms, hurricanes, and severe convective storms which result in wind damage is essential to planning for it. CoreLogic’s granular wind data and ability to anticipate both loss and efficiently verify wind risk will bring you confidence in your portfolio. Intelligence reports include:

  • Wind Risk Score
  • Wind Borne Debris
  • Wind Pool

Wildfires are the Biggest Exposure
for P&C Portfolios

Fire hazards aren’t always the result of a natural occurrence. As our growing population continues to expand development, P&C portfolios are becoming more exposed to wildfire risk. Understanding fire-related risk requires an assessment of factors such as surface composition, surrounding vegetation and distance to the responding fire station. We help carriers pinpoint their fire hazard risk and establish better policy premiums without extensive on-site visits by utilizing the below intelligence:

  • Fire Protection
  • Wildfire Risk
  • Distance to Fire Station

Non-weather Hazards are Historically Hard to Analyze

Property insurers have historically been unable to accurately analyze the likelihood of non-weather hazards—such as plumbing and appliance leaks or the likelihood of house fires—due to a lack of consistent and complete data. Built from a broad, diverse and proprietary national database, our suite of products looks at the disparate causes of non-weather damage and their complex interactions to predict the probability of a claim and losses—for any address nationwide. Included intelligence reports are:

  • Non-weather Water risk
  • Non-weather Fire risk
  • US Crime risk
  • Canadian Crime Risk
