Hail and Severe Thunderstorm Risk

Be there to help your customers take cover

Changing weather patterns are creating new challenges for insurers that cover hail events and the severe thunderstorms that often produce them.

Hail damage can take time to detect, leading to delayed claims. But data and analytics can help insurers manage these risks more effectively.
