PCS Catastrophe Loss Index

Pcs Cat Loss Index

The PCS Catastrophe Loss Index quantifies the estimated loss of insured properties resulting from catastrophes. PCS estimates are widely accepted as triggers in many traded financial market instruments, including exchange-traded futures and options, catastrophe bonds and swaps, industry loss warranties (ILWs), and other catastrophe derivative instruments.

PCS users can also access county-level industry loss estimates for U.S. catastrophes, beginning with key 2017-2018 events including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
