CRESTA zones

Turn information into insights

CRESTA zones give insurers, reinsurers, modelers, regulators and other industry professionals a universal global standard for analyzing, aggregating and exchanging risk-related insights. Link your information to a worldwide boundary structure to pinpoint trends and then share results with unmatched accuracy and speed.

Created in collaboration with PERILS CRESTA AG, the new 2019 CRESTA zones offer coverage of 137 countries and reflect the many postcode and administrative boundary changes that have occurred since the last update.
