This post is part of a series sponsored by CoreLogic.

2017 was a game-changing year for the insurance industry. Between the catastrophic deluge of water dumped in Texas from Hurricane Harvey and the unprecedented underinsurance rates of families whose homes and lives were affected, there’s been an increased focus on flood risk by both insurance and reinsurance companies alike.

A detailed analysis by CoreLogic® in Texas and Louisiana from the rainfall of Harvey showed that about 70% of the flood damage was uninsured. After seeing the devastation of the past year, FEMA’s former National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Director Roy E. Wright said, “Recent flooding disasters make even clearer the need for FEMA to share more of the financial risk from flood insurance with the private markets.”

Leading global risk and reinsurance specialist Guy Carpenter has now licensed the CoreLogic U.S. Inland Flood Model, further expanding and enhancing the foundation of their flood risk assessment capabilities. The licensing serves to cement another building block in the 20+ year-long Guy Carpenter/CoreLogic relationship.

The CoreLogic U.S. Inland Flood model enables clients to make informed portfolio risk management and underwriting decisions on flood risk, powered by the most complete, current, connected data available. It also expands modeling objectivity and flood analytics expertise of clients like Guy Carpenter.
