Digital Insurance 50-state Wildfire Analysis

50-state Wildfire Analysis

Model more effectively, price with greater accuracy, streamline claims and pinpoint opportunities.

Hosted by Digital Insurance (formerly Insurance Networking News)

Insurers across the P&C personal and commercial lines spectrum are challenged without the necessary tools, data and technologies to be able to fully understand potential exposures and price risk accurately.

This is especially evident when viewed from the perspective of a sudden, catastrophic loss in an otherwise unsuspecting geographical area. The devastating wildfire in Gatlinburg, TN is just one of many examples of the need for technologies that will help us better understand the risk analysis required that take into account complexities of wildland-urban interfaces and unanticipated exposures.

Find out how leading insurers are combining geodata with superior risk assessment capabilities and automated GIS output to improve everything from cat modeling to enhanced claims planning to disaster response.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Enrich wildland fire policy analyses and rating.
  • Understand and plan for property replacement costs.
  • Create custom rating territories.
  • Perform disaster scenario analyses.
  • Educate your policyholders on preparedness and risk.
