The suite provides businesses access to Munich Re’s in-house risk management tools and knowledge, based on over 130 years of underwriting experience.

Wildfire risk assessment with specific risk scores and high definition maps  

Climate data and claims records indicate a significant rise in wildfire hazard and loss levels in the United States and Canada. The size of the losses highlights the large accumulation potential, something that is often underestimated. The frequency of meteorological conditions that favour severe fire seasons has also increased in many regions around the world. Of major importance for the insurance industry in this context, are additional regions with highly exposed values, such as the Mediterranean in Europe and regions in Australia.

Munich Re has developed a new wildfire risk map to support wildfire risk management. Risk scores are calculated using Munich Re’s claims experience and scientific assessment of the impacts of climate change. This new feature is available on Risk Suite, Munich Re’s integrated web portal for risk management tools. The screen cast below gives you an indication on the risk maps and scores available.
