Driving flood protection forward
Floods are the most frequently occurring and the most expensive natural disaster in the United States. According to FEMA, 99% of the counties in the US have experienced flooding between 1996 and 2019.1 However, many homeowners remain uninsured against this threat.
Munich Re US has a comprehensive US flood strategy and white-label flood insurance products that are designed to match homeowners with the right solutions to help recover faster.
