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:
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
