DMTI Spatial Partners with JBA Risk Management to Provide an Integrated Offering for Reducing Risk and Forecasting Exposure

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- Jun 03, 2014 -- DMTI Spatial Inc. (DMTI), Canada's leading provider of location economics solutions, and JBA Risk Management, a leading provider of natural hazard modelling services for the insurance and reinsurance industry have announced a partnership that will enable DMTI to integrate JBA's Flood Map of Canada into DMTI's location economics platform, Location Hub®. This information will support real-time flood risk analysis, portfolio accumulation risk analysis and the real-time visualization of the potential exposure to flood zones; key data of importance to those in risk management to allow them to better forecast exposure and mitigate risk.

Public Safety Canada has reported that floods are the most costly natural disasters in Canada in terms of property damage. June marks the one year anniversary of Alberta's 2013 super flood. Environment Canada recorded that over 100,000 people were affected, and that commercial damages impacted over 4,000 businesses with over 3,000 buildings flooded. The Alberta flood was Canada's largest insured natural disaster totalling more than $1.74 billion in property damage. Three weeks later, Toronto experienced a record rainfall that triggered flash floods resulting in an estimated $850 million in property damage.

"Understanding the impact of natural disasters such as catastrophic flooding is a complex issue. Many of our customers are challenged with the delicate issue of identifying and mitigating their total risk and exposure within their existing portfolio," said Phil Kaszuba President, DMTI Spatial. "We recognized that the public flood and natural disaster data was insufficient to meet the needs of our customers and it prompted us to seek out a better solution for them. By integrating JBA's Risk Management's Flood Map of Canada into Location Hub, we were able to fill that void and provide a solution that enables the assessment of risk at the address level and facilitates real-time adjudication."

The combined JBA and DMTI offering, provides not only the insurance and financial services industries with detailed Canadian flood data to assist in determining the potential risk and exposure of floods to their portfolios, but is also beneficial to other industries such as retail and telecommunications. Using this information companies can facilitate:

Risk Mitigation:


--  Improve the real-time underwriting and rating of insurance applications
    through more precise knowledge of the risk of the proximity of the
    property to a flood zone. 
--  Enhance real-time mortgage adjudication processes, speed time to
    decision and reduce manual intervention with enhanced insight into the
    precise location of the property as it relates to a flood zone. 

Risk Analysis:

--  Validate capital adequacy requirements and better understand and reduce
    exposure by being able to assess the total accumulated risk to a
    portfolio as it relates to proximity within flood plains. 

Site Planning:

--  Enhance infrastructure and site planning analysis by understanding the
    potential risk of flood before deployment. 

Emergency Preparedness:

--  Proactively build emergency preparedness plans to maintain business
    continuity by understanding when key infrastructures could be impacted
    by flooding. 

"We have always championed collaborations and partnerships that are designed to give clients better access to our data," said Simon Waller, Managing Director of JBA Risk Management. "We are delighted that our Flood Map of Canada will be made available through DMTI's location economics platform. Through DMTI and their real time delivery software, insurers will find it simpler to manage their risks and assess their total or potential exposure to flood."
