Earthquake loss models Australia and New Zealand


As the tragedy seen in Christchurch in 2011 showed, earthquakes in New Zealand have the potential to cause significant loss of life and damage to buildings. While less frequent, earthquakes in Australia can also cause damage and loss.

Risk Frontiers has strong experience in modelling losses arising from such natural hazards with the QuakeNZ model able to calculate building and contents losses for residential portfolios across a wide range of NZ building construction types and vintages. Risk Frontiers also produces an Australian equivalent, QuakeAUS6.
