The Moody’s geocoding engine is tailored to the unique needs of insurers and their exposure data. Location Intelligence API leverages the same geocoding science used across all Moody’s applications. This means underwriters have access to a more consistent view of risk and can avoid minor location discrepancies that could trigger major shifts and potentially distort a property’s risk profile.    

Robust exposure data empowers insurance underwriters with detailed property characteristics. Location Intelligence API includes data for more than 100 million residential and commercial U.S. properties, so insurers can pre-fill exposure to facilitate “no questions asked,” augment existing exposure, or validate existing data. Underwriters can seamlessly integrate granular exposure data available via API to enable accurate risk pricing and reduce underwriting errors, promoting efficient decision-making.  

Deep hazard insights enable insurance underwriters to implement knock-out screening through better understanding of the potential risks that can impact a location. Location Intelligence API delivers real-time hazard insights from Moody’s RMS catastrophe models to automate and speed up location processing with no manual intervention. This data-driven approach promotes efficient underwriting, optimized portfolio risk management, and a competitive edge in the market.

Moody’s Risk Scores, accessible via Location Intelligence API, distill complex catastrophe model analytics into a simple and easy-to-use score between 1 and 10 that streamlines risk selection and expedites decision-making. Underpinned by big data and catastrophe simulation, Risk Scores  account for the vulnerability of user-defined building stock to illuminate potential exposure and enable proactive risk mitigation. This comprehensive, data-driven approach facilitates effective risk management, improving profitability and competitiveness in the residential and small commercial insurance market.

Only Location Intelligence API provides loss cost data for individual properties, equipping insurance underwriters with the same analytics used by the catastrophe modeling team. This data expedites  risk-based pricing by providing location-specific estimates of average annual losses . Moody’s Loss Costs enable consistency from underwriting to portfolio management, resulting in reduced volatility, greater control, and improved predictability.
