It’s important for insurers to have an advanced understanding of their exposure concentrations as well as concentrations where terror attacks are most likely to occur, so they can analyze their current book of business effectively and apply guidelines to select new business as it is underwritten. We’ve developed Rings and Target models within our Accumulations app to assess any type of accumulation, but many of our clients are turning to these models for a deeper understanding of terror accumulations related to their current portfolio or new business that they’re evaluating.

The Rings and Target accumulation models are powerful tools that help you:

    • Identify peak accumulations of exposure within your portfolio. Many legacy solutions leave gaps that SpatialKey has been able to fill with its industry-leading methodology, so you can manage and write with confidence, knowing no potential accumulations have been missed.
    • Analyze your portfolio relative to points of interest. Load any set of location references to analyze concentrations against, like a dataset of high-interest properties, points of interest, historical terror claims or activity, etc.
    • Look at a terror target dataset (locations identified as having terrorism risk such as skyscrapers, churches, train stations, etc.
    • Understand event history (e.g. terror target history, tornado touchdowns, claims experience points, etc.)
    • Evaluate accumulations against your own portfolio locations – run an accumulations analysis by drawing a ring around each point in your own dataset
    • Understand the composition of each accumulation by any attribute of your data and understand which policies and locations contribute to it

Rings and Targets, along with our other models in Accumulations, gives you the option to run your analysis based on specific metrics in your own dataset, on exposed limits, or on a specific area of interest within custom geographic extents. Don’t ignore the impact terror can have on your portfolio and get ahead of it by implementing these new models today. Reach out and we’ll get everything set up for you: sales@spatialkey.com

Last week, we announced our partnership with KatRisk LLC to deliver an innovative U.S. flood solution. Re/insurers can now easily identify and monitor portfolio flood accumulations and optimize risk selection at the point of sale.
This solution is delivered in the new SpatialKey Flood Analyst app and further extends the value of the Flood Underwriting app.

We have integrated KatRisk’s U.S. riverine and surface water flood data, available at 10m and 30m resolutions. Additionally, the KatRisk flood risk data can be complemented with coastal surge data from NOAA, accumulated by USGS hydrological units, and compared to FEMA flood zones to help re/insurers build intuition and calibrate their views of risk.


Dag Lohmann, CEO and co-founder of KatRisk, said: “We are excited to team with SpatialKey to deliver our detailed and comprehensive flood risk data. The KatRisk 10m resolution data is unique in its detail and breadth, modeling both riverine and surface water flooding in all areas of the contiguous United States with no lower limit on modeled catchment size. The collaboration between KatRisk and SpatialKey has put the SpatialKey application ahead of the curve in being able to rapidly visualize and analyze our highly detailed and expansive data sets.”

SpatialKey partners with Innovation Group to deliver insight and extended business value to insurers.

Posted on February 19, 2014 by Bret Stone


Press Release - Feb 19, 2014:


Innovation Group is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with SpatialKey that combines the expertise of two leading insurance industry data analytics solution providers.

The need for data analytics is a high priority for insurers as it drives informed decision-making and more effective risk management. The next logical step is to provide that data in delivery-focused, intuitive, analytic visualizations which increase the usability and power of the best intelligence available, the insurer's data. This new partnership makes that next step a reality by integrating the data capabilities of Innovation Group's Insurer Analytics with SpatialKey's geospatial and visualization technology.

"We are excited about this partnership and our ability to join forces with SpatialKey to further support our customers," said Euan King, CEO North America Insurer Software for Innovation Group. "Insurer Analytics has already brought enhanced insights to insurers and this will further expand their knowledge and improve their utilization of data. Our goal is to provide Innovation Group customers with cutting-edge solutions that enable them business improvement through knowledge and efficiency. This alliance supports that mission through additional benefits for both underwriting and claims."

Insurer Analytics transforms data through an automated governance process into relevant and actionable business information from policy through claims. SpatialKey adds an additional dimension to these capabilities through advanced visualization capabilities, making that information more accessible and usable for business critical processes, like catastrophe event response and underwriting. Available immediately, the integration of the two solutions allows users of both Insurer Analytics and SpatialKey to not only provide easy access to business users, but allows them to trust the data displayed.

"By bringing together Insurer Analytics with SpatialKey, insurers can keep all of their data in one place and seamlessly pass data to SpatialKey's Insurance Intelligence solution to more efficiently turn data into intelligence and intelligence into action," said Tom Link, CEO of SpatialKey. "As stewards to the evolving insurance ecosystem, we are thrilled to partner with Innovation Group to deliver advanced and relevant analytics to our clients. This partnership further reinforces our mutual commitment to delivering value to the insurance industry."
