KCC is Raising the Bar on Catastrophe Models

Based on the most current and advanced scientific research, KCC models are distinguished by their accuracy, transparency, and capacity for customization. By providing the most reliable estimates for losses, numbers of claims, and claim size distributions in high resolution, KCC models can be used as your primary tool for pricing, underwriting, claims adjusting, reinsurance decisions, and portfolio management.

Avoid Surprise Losses and Uncover Opportunities

Catastrophes are like real estate—it’s all about location. While other models prepare you for the events most likely to happen, KCC models prepare you for all possible events. The Characteristic Event (CE) method ensures complete and unbiased spatial coverage in order to identify your exposure concentrations and hidden surprises scientifically and efficiently.
