EQECAT Hurricane Model Recertified by Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology

une 24, 2009

Oakland, California

EQECAT, Inc., the authority on extreme-risk modeling, announced that the Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology (FCHLPM) has recertified EQECAT’s hurricane model for projecting hurricane loss costs and probable maximum loss levels for personal residential rate filings in Florida.

The EQECAT model is based upon generally accepted science, engineering expertise, claims data and advanced mathematics.

The EQECAT North Atlantic Hurricane model, a probabilistic model designed to estimate potential damage and insured losses due to hurricanes in the mainland United States, the islands of the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Bermuda met all the requirements established by the FCHLPM.

The model was first released commercially in late 1995 and is used by primary insurers and reinsurers, as well as financial institutions and intermediaries for portfolio management, pricing and risk transfer planning.

"We are pleased with FCHLPM’s decision to recertify EQECAT's model," said Bill Keogh, senior vice president of EQECAT. "EQECAT’s modeled risk perspective enhances our clients' abilities to make prudent long-term risk decisions. The FCHLPM certification provides added confidence that our model provides accurate and reliable loss projections."
