Previsico and Watertight agree flood risk mitigation partnership

Live flood alert insurtech, Previsico, has today announced a partnership with flood resilience solutions provider, Watertight International.

The partnership is designed to support insurers’ risk engineering teams as they undertake flood risk analysis. Liberty Specialty Markets will be the first insurer to use the service.

Jonathan Jackson, CEO of Previsico, said: “Previsico and Watertight is a perfect partnership. During early trials, Previsico had installed its own sensors, but we needed a specialist to take on the installation following surging demand. Together Previsico and Watertight are now able to offer a one-stop-shop for risk engineers who have assessed properties at risk of flood and require PFR measures and warnings.”

Gareth Boyd, CEO of Watertight, added: “Watertight had been seeking a flood warning system that covered surface water, as our flood resilience preparedness measures’ effectiveness relies on such warnings. It will be hugely beneficial therefore, to partner with Previsico, the market leader in this space.”
