There is no substitute for precision geocoding of insured exposure data, coupled with high resolution flood maps to assess the relative risk. Unfortunately, in many emerging markets of the Asia Pacific, such information is not available to insurers. In this circumstance, re/insurers are required to use alternative approaches, such as precautionary loading of insurance lines or cautious Probable Maximum Loss (PML) assumptions. We have developed our FloodSTAT tool to offer flood statistics for aggregated boundaries, based on the underlying flood potential at different return periods. FloodStat is provided in XLS format and provides an indicative estimate of flood risk that correlates highly with our flood maps.
