Discover how AIR’s recently enhanced and expanded Caribbean tropical cyclone and earthquake risk models can provide you with the best views of risk across 29 countries and territories in the region.

Caribbean Industry Exposure

To improve our view of risk and support aggregate modeling across the Caribbean, our Caribbean Industry Exposure Database has been rebuilt from the ground up. By conducting damage surveys, leveraging satellite data, and performing extensive research, the updated database now has a 90-meter resolution for all 29 countries and reflects the latest policy terms and conditions.

Risk Model Advancements for the Region

The past several years have reaffirmed the vulnerability of the Caribbean to tropical cyclones and earthquakes. Hurricanes Maria and Irma (2017), Hurricane Dorian (2019), and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti devastated the countries they impacted. And the January 2020 earthquake in Puerto Rico was a more recent reminder of Caribbean seismic risk.

Working with local experts, AIR has been able to make innovative advancements in modeling the region after observing firsthand the devastation left after significant hurricanes and earthquakes.
