Helicopter view

Swiss Re offers a range of proprietary geo risk tools designed to provide you with swift overviews and assessments of natural hazard exposures worldwide: CatNet® assesses the risk by combining hazard, loss, exposure and your insurance information with selected background maps and satellite imagery. Use maps and data about climate change, catastrophic event impact, population density and more to support your daily work. The tool is browser-based and ready to use.

Better bottom-line results

CatNet® supports a wide range of business processes: from improved single risk assessments to risk engineers conducting surveys. It can provide exposure insights and location data set analysis, thus supporting accumulation control. 

Consistent, high-quality data

Swiss Re’s CatNet® online hazard atlas helps you write international and local business where risk assessment is challenging. September 2020 marks the beta release of a new, updated tool for testing, with a fully-fledged release slated for early in 2021, including a Premium service. CatNet® Premium complements the CatNet® offering with additional features, such as almost instantaneous event footprint analysis for earthquakes, tropical cyclones and European winter storms, and new datasets about sustainability and climate change. The CatNet® Premium version will be available for an additional fee.
