Understanding Catastrophe Risk
Catastrophe risks are inherently challenging to model, due to the limited knowledge about what determines the probability of extreme events, and the need to understand all potential pathways to loss.
RMS models integrate and synthesize the relevant science, data, engineering knowledge, and even behavior of claimants and insurers in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Resulting metrics and analytics are harnessed by insurers and reinsurers, property owners, and policymakers to make informed risk management and mitigation decisions.
Uncertainty lies at the heart of risk modeling, and demands an appreciation at all stages, including the quality of the exposure data fed into the models and the interpretation of model results. The more catastrophe model users understand a model’s underlying assumptions and uncertainties, the better equipped they are to make informed risk management decisions.
RMS exposure and results databases, metrics, and analytics are a common currency for information exchange, facilitating interactions among insurers, reinsurers, brokers, rating agencies, and regulators.
RMS model results are accepted by rating agencies and regulatory bodies, allowing market participants to communicate risk in a language that others will understand.
Our ownership structure ensures the independence required to work impartially for all parties involved in pricing, managing, and transferring catastrophe risk. – less
