Arming an organization is leaders with the best knowledge and data available to understand current, mid-range, and long-term impacts from increasing of flooding types and flood intensities is the first step toward smart risk management, business continuity planning and capital decision making.  

Identifying and defining the vulnerability of physical and economic assets to flooding equips an organization with the critical information needed to prioritize, budget for and execute adaptation plans that lower their risks to impacts from tidal, sea level rise, hurricane and storm flooding, heavy rainfall and groundwater inundation.

Coastal Risk's analysis and mapping of a property's vulnerability to various forms of flooding is becoming an essential business tool. Coastal Risk’s multi-year flood analyses, (FIRST Score® and Coastal Risk Rapid Assessment™) can contribute significantly to the planning and decision-making processes involved in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, development, operations, capital improvements, sourcing, transportation, safety, and sustainability across all sectors and industries.

Who Can Benefit from Coastal Risk’s services?

Coastal Risk’s products and services enable real estate brokers, insurance companies, banks, and mortgage providers, servicers and investors to more completely evaluate the economic risks of their real estate transactions and portfolios.

For real estate brokers, knowing a property’s risk of flooding is of crucial importance in serving clients and meeting licensure requirements regarding full disclosure of property conditions.

Mortgage lenders and insurance companies can similarly benefit by accessing a fuller accounting of a property’s flood vulnerability – including non-storm related flooding, and ground water inundation.  

Financial institutions that package mortgage-backed securities and those that own portfolios containing real estate assets are wisely moving toward incorporating analyses of changing flood patterns and intensities into their strategic investment decisions. 

Telecoms and Utilities with assets in tidal areas use Coastal Risk vulnerability studies to make better equipment siting and installation decisions, as well as prioritize adaptation solutions and plans for their most critical assets.  The benefits range from reduced outages and improved reputation to avoided maintenance, equipment replacement, and emergency retrofitting costs.
