Shining a light on climate-related risk

As the climate changes, historical trends become less predictive of the future. We use data science and technology to continuously improve how we track, monitor and model climate-related risks. Our new Climatic Hazards and Advanced Risk Modelling (CHARM) platform utilizes a FireWatch tool to provide our insurance teams a view of active wildfires, as well as an interactive map to visualize the outlook of properties that may be exposed. This enables targeted, real-time decisions that include advising nearby clients of their risk.
