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.
PCS data is available on ISOnet PCS. For flexible, customizable PCS catastrophe data delivery, customers can subscribe to FlatCat, which provides access to the entire PCS catastrophe-history database.
PCS investigates loss events in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as additional regions around the globe.

These services keep insurers, their customers, regulators, and other interested parties informed about the total costs of disasters in these regions.
