We handle your property risks
Extreme losses caused by disasters can be a major headache for insurers, banks, investors and the public sector alike. We have solutions.
Property coverage from a high-capacity reinsurance partner
Loss potentials from natural disasters such as storms, floods or earthquakes are rising at an alarming rate. In times of growing economic interdependencies, globe-spanning supply chains and changing risks resulting from climate change more and more assets are exposed to natural catastrophes. Rely on us as a partner that understands these risks and the consequences you face.
With our capital strength and expertise, we can bear a substantial share of these risks as a reinsurer, absorbing financial shock events and supporting risk mitigation.
Over 200 facultative property underwriters are at the disposal of our clients to analyse their exposure, supported by over 30 nat cat experts, with every one of them tapped into a global research network. This ensures we always have the latest research available and remain a reliable partner at your side — even after large losses. We only use our own risk models or ones from leading providers that we have scrutinised and further developed in-house.
Our solutions for your property-related risks
High capacity, even in exposed regions
Solutions according to your needs
More often than not, a standardised solution is not the right approach for dealing with complex risk transfer. Our property underwriters are specialists in their respective fields and can provide extensive support.
We use digital technologies such as aerial images for automated and more efficient claims handling. The “Remote Industries” application permits automated recording of damage following a hurricane. High-resolution aerial imagery is used to estimate damage to buildings with the help of special AI-based algorithms, so insurers often know how severe damage is even before the policyholder does.
Remote Industries is currently available in the USA, including the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, as well as in the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands.
