    JBA RISK MANAGEMENT

    JBA is a global leader in flood risk management, expert at translating complex data into useful information. Also known as The Flood People, they use sophisticated hydraulic approaches and models to provide cutting-edge flood risk intelligence.

    JBA’s suite of high-resolution catastrophe models and event sets utilise the latest science to assess the potential severity and frequency of flood losses to global property portfolios, making it easy for (re)insurers to assess the potential risk they face on a return period basis.

    Their market-leading high-resolution global flood maps and analytics enable users to understand and manage their flood risk, using the latest research and innovation. ModEx provides (re)insurers with streamlined access to JBA's catastrophe models, flood maps and event sets through one source.

    UK River, Surface Water and Coastal Flood

    JBA’s UK Flood probabilistic model is the first to include river, surface water and coastal flood for the United Kingdom. Designed with the implementation of Flood Re in mind, the model enables the comprehensive, high-resolution quantification of flood risk to insured properties.

    UK Climate Change Flood

    JBA's UK Climate Change Flood Model, which draws on the latest scientific understanding of climate change, helps (re)insurers understand the impact of climate change across the country. It provides quantitative results that supports projections from research and government data that the number of UK flood events causing financial loss will rise between now and 2040.

    River and Surface Water

    JBA’s probabilistic flood model for river and surface water in Sri Lanka combines flood hazard maps and thousands of years of simulated events with a built environment model and bespoke vulnerability curves. Analysis in JCalf®, enables output of insured and ground up results.

    JBA Risk Management’s probabilistic flood model for Thailand was released in response to the need amongst insurers and reinsurers to better understand Thai flood risk following the floods of 2011. The model combines river flood hazard maps, covering 20,000km of river network, and 10,000 years of simulated events with bespoke vulnerability curves and a built environment model.

    The Europe probabilistic model enables the calculation of return period losses across Europe. The underlying flood maps of Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland are modelled at up to 10m resolution. An event set, a built environment model and vulnerability functions for 78 risk types complete the model which has five aggregation levels, from 5-digit postcode level up to Europe-wide level.

    HIGH QUALITY FLOOD MAPS THAT HELP YOU MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS

    The global flood maps provide flood extents and depths for multiple return periods, covering both river and surface water flooding, as well as coastal flooding in some countries.

    Maps are available at 30m resolution for all countries globally and at 5m and 10m resolution for the UK and Europe, with other countries, including the US, in development.

    ANALYTICS TO MANAGE FLOOD RISK

    JBA’s flood analytics assist with risk reflective pricing at an individual property level to provide a flood rating and a yearly technical price, expressed as an annual damage ratio.

    This pricing data, coupled with the flood maps, enable underwriters to set the right price for the risk identified, adopt a more competitive pricing structure and compare risk profiles globally.

    France Flood Map 2018
    GLOBAL FLOOD MAP 2018

    Our latest flood mapping for France enables insurers, reinsurers, brokers and property search companies to assess flood risk against the highest resolution flood data available in the market.

    The maps address both river and surface water flooding and can be used in conjunction with the river flood defended area data to present a realistic view of risk. High-resolution mapping enables the most appropriate differentiation of properties at risk for greater confidence in property level assessment, accumulation control and risk management.
