EigenRisk Names Data Partners for Catastrophe Modeling and Analytics Platform

ANN ARBOR — EigenRisk Inc., a software development and professional services firm serving insurers, reinsurers, brokers, and corporate risk managers, has added three data partners for its EigenPrism platform.

Together, the data partners — KatRisk, HurricaneMapping, and Meteorological Connections — provide individuals using the platform with ready access to realtime data on flood exposures, hurricanes, and evolving weather conditions to analyze potential and emerging risks related to these conditions in various parts of
the world.

“We developed EigenPrism to give individuals charged with managing risks the capabilities to be more self-sufficient in data discovery, scenario planning and modeling,” said Sanjay Patel, who leads product strategy and operations for EigenRisk. “KatRisk, HurricaneMapping, and MetCon, each provide access to data that’s critical for analyzing, monitoring and managing certain natural
catastrophe and weather exposures. We are continuing to add resources to EigenPrism that will ultimately give clients using the platform access to a full range of catastrophe exposure information in all areas of the world.”

Specifically, the partner firms now bring the following resources and capabilities to EigenPrism clients:
• KatRisk. Based in Berkeley, Calif., KatRisk has flood hazard risk maps for the United States, Canada, and 15 countries in Asia, as well as Atlantic Basin hurricane and Asia typhoon models.
