Insurance Loss Module

Introduction

ILM, short for Insurance Loss Module, is one of the main components of the Florida Public Hurricane Loss Model (FPHLM). Based on the wind speeds generated by the Wind Speed Correction Module and a set of vulnerability matrices/curves that have been pre-computed for typical buildings, this module estimates the physical damage to the exterior, interior, and contents for each policy in an insurance portfolio. In addition, it estimates the additional living expenses and the vulnerabilities for appurtenant structures.

The damages to the buildings are then translated into expected insured losses on the basis of the policies' exposures. The computed losses are aggregated in a variety of ways to produce a set of expected annual hurricane wind losses and produce probable maximum losses for various return periods. The expected losses are reported by construction type, by county or ZIP Code, by policy form, by rating territory, and combinations thereof.
