FWS' catastrophe analysts leverage CAT models to derive catastrophe loss probability, assess financial strength of the insurers and calculate Average Annual Loss (AAL)
Over the past 20 years, the insurance industry has gradually grown up to the fact that the frequency of catastrophic events is increasing steadily and have major repercussions as far as property and business liabilities are concerned. As a result, the reliance on CAT modeling for the insurance and risk management industry has grown exponentially. As more data becomes readily available, the algorithms for these models also become significantly more complex and require an in-depth understanding of catastrophe modeling for insurance to compute in a day what otherwise can easily take weeks.
At Flatworld, our global team of insurance catastrophe modelers and catastrophe analysts coordinate their efforts to help your organization better manage your exposures. We serve as the sole point of contact and assist you with identifying, quantifying, and managing risks while cutting down costs and increasing efficiency.

While the basic framework for all our models remains the same, we can also customize it based upon specific parameters as requested by you. These are the basic steps of how our catastrophe modeling for insurance works -
Your underwriter adds the location and building data into the model
Based upon the data entered, the model geocodes the location along with all geographic coordinates and identifying the location's distance to high-risk zones such as coasts
A stochastic event module then defines event sets for the location specified and all risk types
A hazard module generates up-to-date information to determine the overall hazard intensity
A proprietary vulnerability module then retrieves the hazard intensity and generates information related to the average damage ratio and associated uncertainty factors such as construction type, roof type, etc.
Based upon all the above data, our financial module then calculates the losses based on policy terms and building values
