It could complement traditional catastrophe insurance markets by providing supplemental financial protection to community members in the event of a disaster or be used as full-limit, single-peril property protection in areas with high risk. In other instances, CBCI can offer the community a means to work with carriers or private capital providers to rebuild and sustain insurance uptake while facing loss volatility.
