New Resource Available Through Agreement with ACLED

ANN ARBOR, MI, February 2, 2021 – EigenRisk® today announced a new agreement with the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), a leading provider of real-time data and analysis on political violence and protest around the world, to make global political violence alerts available through the EigenPrism® catastrophe risk management platform.

“There’s no question the global pandemic, its human toll and widespread economic consequences are fueling greater civil unrest in many areas of the world,” said Deepak Badoni, president, EigenRisk. “Besides monitoring their exposures to natural disasters, risk managers, supply chain executives, insurers and reinsurers increasingly realize they must be vigilant about higher levels of political risk anywhere in the world. Our agreement with ACLED will help our clients stay on top of political violence and related incidents that may affect their critical business interests.”

The alerts, generated weekly on EigenPrism, cover a wide range of reported incidents of political violence and protests in all areas of the world, including Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Europe, and the U.S. Events reported include battles, explosions, incidents of remote violence, as well as violence against civilians, riots, protests and non-violent strategic developments.

EigenPrism subscribers opting for ACLED’s data sets can be notified automatically when any of their assets, insured properties, operations or trading partners is located within a defined proximity of a reported event. Individual users can customize the alerts according to a variety of factors, such as timing, proximity zone, fatalities, event type or impacted values. Each alert includes the information source, actors, location, severity (such as fatalities), and other relevant information.

EigenRisk is providing complimentary access to these new alerts through March 15, 2021 to all subscribers using the EigenPrism platform.
