“With this partnership, we are able to provide access to high quality seismic hazard and risk data.” Shubharoop Ghosh, Vice President of Data Services at ImageCat
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) November 01, 2021
ImageCat and Global Earthquake Model (GEM) partnership provides efficient access to GEM’s global seismic hazard and risk information through ImageCat’s multi-hazard risk management decision support platforms Inhance® and FACFinder™. Outputs of GEM’s global earthquake hazard and risk models are already available in these platforms and provide geospatial information layers for insurance and risk management clients to quickly assess their relative earthquake risks.
“GEM is keen to start a new chapter of partnership with ImageCat in mutually providing hazard, exposure and risk information to support the global risk and disaster management needs of our partners and clients,” said John Schneider, GEM Secretary General. “We’ve already successfully collaborated on several projects over the past decade, so this partnership is the next logical step in the development of our relationship.”
“GEM provides global seismic hazard data and risk products that are key for our insurance platform clients involved in managing catastrophe risk, reducing economic losses and saving human lives,” said Shubharoop Ghosh. “With this partnership, we are able to provide access to high quality seismic hazard and risk data.”
ImageCat’s flagship exposure product, Inhance®, is a ground-breaking solution to exposure data problems and provides a suite of analysis tools to help (re)insurers, managing general agents and brokers visualize their property exposures in terms of completeness, accuracy, and appropriateness.
FACFinder™ is an exposure aggregation and hazard mapping platform for Facultative Insurance underwriters that allows them to monitor exposure aggregation and perform better risk analysis. It provides a quick and simple way to identify existing risk locations and their exposure to hazards and allows them to understand the impacts of adding new facultative locations to their book of business.
