Presented by

Ali Smedley, Senior Research Analyst and Cory Isaacson, CEO and Co-founder at reThought Insurance

About this talk

Flooding is the most pervasive and damaging natural hazard throughout the world. Insurers want to understand the risk to accurately price policies, decide which properties fall out of appetite and avoid concentrated aggregates. Modelling flood is not easy, however. Model outputs can vary widely. In this LiveChat, InsTech’s Ali Smedley will be joined by Cory Isaacson, CEO and Co-founder at reThought Insurance, to explore how these challenges can be tackled.
