CRESTA:net allows insurers, reinsurers and risk managers to quickly find the CRESTA zone associated with almost any location in the world. When the appropriate zone is known, companies can establish the natural hazard risk and exposure for that region and determine appropriate cover. CRESTA:net is provided as a hosted service on an annual basis and can be configured to link to corporate Intranets which can facilitate a seamless risk / exposure information service.
The Global CRESTA (Catastrophe Risk Evaluating and Standardising Target Accumulations) zone data set helps brokers and reinsurers assess and present risk, based on the zoning system established by the world's leading reinsurers. Based primarily on the observed or expected seismic activity (although drought, flood and wind storms are also considered) within a country, CRESTA zones consider the distribution of insured values within a country as well as administrative or political boundaries for easier assessment of risks. CRESTA Zones are the essential basis for reinsurance negotiation and portfolio analysis.
