Breadth of Model CoverageWith over 100 probabilistic and scenario models spanning 10 perils and over 60 territories, we empower insurers by providing risk insights for the peak risk zones around the globe, as well as for the emerging markets. This allows insurers to place
effective reinsurance programmes and manage capital based on more accurate model results. Impact Forecasting partners with academic and industry organisations around the world to incorporate the latest research into all of our catastrophe models.

Customisable modelsAll Impact Forecasting models can be customised based on the client’s requirements, for example using an insurer’s loss data to generate more accurate results for a specific line of business, modify an existing event to explore the sensitivity of the
losses for regulatory purposes or explore hazard uncertainty for a given peril. Recent examples include using our engineering expertise to apply claims data from churches and greenhouses to create bespoke damage functions and exploring uncertainty in the hazard component of our US hurricane
Transparent ELEMENTS loss calculation platformOur models run in ELEMENTS, which gives insurers the ability to incorporate their own view of risk into model results. It delivers transparency so every step of the calculation process is clearly defined and can be easily
explained to stakeholders, regulators and rating agencies while helping to quantify uncertainty in various model components. As a universal catastrophe modelling platform, ELEMENTS has the ability to run both Impact Forecasting models and third party models for any peril or territory. It also
enables users to quantify and visualise the range of uncertainties to make business decisions based on their individual risk appetites.
Risk rating information to enhance primary underwritingImpact Forecasting’s set of hazard and risk score products—based on its modelled data—enables more accurate underwriting and risk assessment for natural and man-made hazards. The data helps insurers and corporations
understand the impact of catastrophe risk on individual locations and then in turn estimate how much premium to charge.
Catastrophe Analysis and ReportingImpact Forecasting provides real-time information on catastrophic events through Cat Alerts, Weekly and Monthly Cat Recaps and the Annual Global Climate and Catastrophe Report. The Catastrophe Insight portal provides aggregated economic and insured loss data for global natural catastrophe events during the current year plus the previous decade. Users can compare losses by peril or region.
