Risk Assessment

Portfolio Analysis is the evaluation of risk to large numbers of properties. Karma2go® uses CATmandu® to estimate the business impact of California earthquakes and U.S. coastal hurricanes.

karma2go, LLC (K2GO) uses probabilistic and engineering methods to realistically evaluate the performance of structures under specified catastrophic conditions. K2GO combines custom developed catastrophe modeling software with advanced structural analysis tools and extensive engineering, climatological and geological databases to perform these evaluations.


CATmandu is an advanced catastrophe modeling tool developed by K2GO. CATmandu uses science and engineering models and databases to analyze the effects of earthquakes and hurricanes on client portfolios. By using reliable tools and technologies, this sophisticated software produces better business information for insurers, reinsurers, property owners and risk managers.

This includes:

  • Ground-up losses
  • Gross losses
  • Reinsurance losses
  • Confidence and uncertainty
  • Probable maximum loss (PML)
  • Maximum foreseeable loss (MFL)
  • Annualized loss
