Quick Overview

We have been told all of our insurance careers that flood is an uninsurable exposure and that it is best left to the NFIP for coverage. The truth is that the private market is writing more flood coverage than ever and doing so well. Join us as we discover what the private market is doing to address this growing market segment.

We can almost forget everything we thought we knew about floods and insurance. Long considered to be an uninsurable exposure, the flood peril is now being addressed with new forms of risk assessment, loss control, and policy forms that create the prospect of a self-sustaining private market for flood coverage.

Yet the core flood problem remains as it has been for decades. While virtually no property has zero exposure to flood loss, the vast majority of properties in the U.S. pay zero premium toward flood insurance, leaving the public sector on the hook to aid flood victims.

This seminar will explore three key topics:

  • The latest developments in measuring exposure to flood loss and pricing the risk;
  • The recent expansion and development of private market policy forms and rating for flood coverage; and
  • Proposals to establish and stabilize the respective roles of private insurers and the public sector is addressing flood loss.
