Duff & Phelps, A Kroll Business, provides real and personal property insurance valuation services to clients worldwide.
Insurers, brokers and underwriters rely on accurate property data for risk management. Inflated insurable property values can result in payment of inaccurate premiums, while inadequate insurance coverage can be disastrous in the event of a loss.
Our experience in providing current replacement costs across varied industries, based on our internal global database coupled with our local market knowledge, helps our clients, advisors and insurance brokers effectively estimate the optimal sum insured. Additionally, our digital portfolio analysis capabilities can analyze and profile thousands of properties at a time to identity insurable value risks across a business. It can also benchmark risk to produce an aggregated view of the replacement cost deficit or excess. Our rigorous site inspection ensures robust data collection, which results in effective replacement cost estimates and forms the basis for accurate insurance coverage.
