As extreme weather events, such as wildfires, severe storms, hurricanes and flooding have increased in frequency and severity, the property and casualty insurance industry has been crippled with skyrocketing losses. In response, forward-thinking insurers are increasingly turning to AI as a crucial tool to assess risk and mitigate these losses. Often decades old traditional risk models haven’t been able to accurately predict risk, leaving both insurers and property owners vulnerable.

Through harnessing the immense computing power of the cloud and leveraging cutting-edge AI and machine learning techniques on unique data sources, such as aerial imagery, ZestyAI offers precise modeling that shows how exposed properties are to potential damage. By analyzing specific characteristics like roof complexity, quality, and building materials, ZestyAI delivers comprehensive data-driven insights to assist clients in navigating climate and property risks effectively. ZestyAI’s AI climate risk models are trained on actual losses and rooted in science, generating a far more accurate picture of risk insurers can trust.

Additionally, ZestyAI models offer transparency into risk mitigation and pricing. With ZestyAI, carriers can share the results of risk models with their customers to educate them on the drivers of risk and specific actions that can be taken to lower their property’s risk exposure. The result is transparency in pricing and risk and empowering homeowners to take an active role in mitigation, and ultimately lowering losses.

ZestyAI’s recognition by CB Insights showcases its industry leadership and dedication to revolutionizing climate and property risk analytics. ZestyAI continues to grow its client base, partnerships, and its climate risk models, driving innovation and shaping the future of the insurance and real estate markets.
