Research shows continuing growth in the total insured value of exposed coastal properties in the United States of around 4% per annum since 2013


BOSTON, Nov. 10, 2016 — Catastrophe risk modeling firm AIR Worldwide today released an update to its “Coastline at Risk” report containing AIR's most recent estimates of the total insured value of residential and commercial properties in states along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast of the United States.

Over the last decade, the United States has experienced a significant increase in the number and value of exposed coastal properties that will continue to contribute to increasing hurricane losses for insurers. The report has been updated to chart the continuing growth in the total insured value of these exposed coastal properties since AIR’s last update in 2013. 

Key findings in the Coastline at Risk report:

  • Changes in the total insured value of properties along the coastline
  • Estimated total insured value of residential and commercial properties in the coastal counties of the U.S. East and Gulf coasts
  • U.S. states with the largest proportion of its total insured value in coastal counties
