CATmandu® is an advanced
catastrophe modeling tool developed by K2GO. CATmandu uses science
and engineering models and databases to analyze the effects of earthquakes
and hurricanes, storm surges, waves, and tornadoes on client properties
or portfolios. By using reliable tools and technologies, this sophisticated
software produces better business information for property owners,
risk managers, and financial institutions.
- Ground-up losses
- Gross losses
- Reinsurance losses
- Confidence and uncertainty
- Probable maximum loss (PML)
- Maximum foreseeable loss (MFL)
- Annualized loss
CATmandu is more reliable than currently available any other catastrophe
modeling software because
- it incorporates peer-reviewed scientific and engineering data
that are ignored by expert opinion models,
- it is validated, not calibrated, with historic catastrophe
- it is flexible and scaleable, allowing clients to use varying
amounts of input data, and
- it is built for the future, ready to incorporate new research
that arises in catastrophe science.
CATmandu uses a step-by-step process to model portfolio assets,
hazards, damage, repair cost, and insurance/reinsurance losses,
as illustrated below.
In each step of the process, CATmandu incorporates the latest models
available from science and engineering research. Each model has
been individually validated and peer reviewed by a panel of outside
experts. CATmandu's flexible software architecture will allow the
rapid integration of new models to the process as they become available.
