This week, RedZone Software is in attendance at the Cat Risk Management Conference in Orlando, FL. The conference is hosted every year by the Reinsurance Association of America (RAA). The event brings leading global experts together to meet and discuss catastrophe risk management. Representatives from all across the industry were present, including: reinsurers, modeling companies, researchers, regulators, and academics. As the conference subtitle for 2020 indicates, attendees are experiencing “Forward Looking Catastrophe Risk Management”! This is RedZone’s 3rd year in attendance featuring the RZRisk and RZExposure solutions we offer.

Solutions for Underwriting Wildfire Risk

While at the conference, RedZone Software, along with RedZone Analytics, hosted a booth showcasing Strategies for Optimizing Portfolios for Wildfire Risk. The booth highlighted the process of “portfolio optimization” – which is described as distributing assets to support an insurance business case based on comparative analysis between potential portfolios. Typically, insurance strategies maximize factors such as expected return and minimize cost like financial risk. Toward this end, RedZone has built Correlated Risk Zones which allow for the aggregation of a portfolio or development of a strategy for a growing portfolio. Insurance companies want boundaries that make tactical sense to develop their strategies, but also allow them to apply it down to the underwriting level. RedZone Analytics provides a way to do both.

RZRisk, along with RZExposure, helps answer the question “How do you think about wildfire risk across the entire portfolio, not just on a policy by policy basis?” Companies want to distribute assets in a risk-based way, aligning location risk data with strategic priorities. In order to simplify the process, RedZone’s integrated dashboard supports analysis at both property and portfolio scales. The last few years of major losses has changed the way the insurance industry has to think about being profitable. RedZone’s product offerings are helping many companies manage capacity, develop reinsurance strategies, and set pricing and eligibility.
