THE RESEARCH

What the experts say

Deloitte Center for Financial Services

"That’s not to say that insurers wouldn’t be interested in the possibility of tapping into the $3.3 billion or so in premiums paid each year to the NFIP by policyholders, as this market likely represents the largest potential growth opportunity in the property and casualty market."

Milliman

“Private residential flood insurance in the US represents one of the best opportunities in decades to expand the reach of the property insurance industry.”
