Loss Data Methodology

201708 Loss Data Methodology Cover_250x324_outlinedAll loss data is not equal. The P&C community has access to a myriad of loss databases that range in scope, assembly, accuracy, granularity, etc. Since inception, we have invested more than 250 person-years to build our loss database of more than 800,000 legal cases, actions, and events that have resulted in, or might result in, significant financial losses, equating to more than $9 trillion in losses. So how do we do it?

Analytic Applications Using Advisen Loss Data

The utility of Advisen’s loss database is proven when powering predictive models and custom analytics designed to assess potential loss values. Our loss database also provides a deep archive of loss history by which to compare an insurance company’s loss experience or show a corporate board of directors what types of losses have stymied peer companies. Given the structured database format, applications designed to showcase loss susceptibility and limit adequacy or simply demonstrate pain points and fear factors are frequent applications, too.

Our loss database, combined with information from more than 20 million corporate litigations, forms Advisen’s Loss Insight.
