Insurance valuation is the process of estimating the fair market value (FMV) of an insurance policy or contract. The FMV can be used to determine whether the policy should be canceled or renewed and may also be used to determine whether a claim should be paid. Insurance replacement value assessment would typically include the estimated current construction cost, provision for cost escalation during the insured period, and the rebuilding process.

There are a number of factors that go into calculating an insurance valuation, including the coverage offered by the policy, the age and type of the policy, underlying risk factors, and recent trends in rates and claims.
An Insurance Replacement Valuation is a report which assesses the accurate replacement cost of a building in an event that would cause any loss or damage.
Insurance valuations can be expensive and time-consuming, but they are essential for ensuring that policies are properly priced and that claims are processed in a fair manner.
Claims valuation is used when a company is considering whether to settle a claim. The company will use mathematical models to determine the probability of winning and then provide a price for settlement.
The actuarial valuation is used when a company is considering whether to retire or not to renew an existing policy. The actuarial model will estimate how much money the company would lose by not renewing the policy and then provide a price for doing so.
