What can you learn from Exposure?

Many RMS team members are active bloggers and speakers at speaking engagements, and contribute to articles, but to capture even more of our expertise and insight, and to reflect the breadth of our activities, we have created a new magazine called Exposure, which is ready for you to download.

The aim of Exposure magazine is to bring together topics of special interest to catastrophe and risk management professionals, and recognize the vast area that individuals involved in risk management must cover today.  There is also a theme that we believe unites the risk community, and that is the belief that “risk is opportunity,” and the articles within Exposure magazine reflect that this is a market seeking to avoid surprises, improve business performance, and innovate to create new opportunities for growth.

Within the foreword to Exposure, Hemant Shah, CEO of RMS, also reflects on an “inflection point” in the industry, a mix of globalization, changing market structures, to technology, data and analytics, offering a chance for the industry to innovate and increase its relevance.  In Exposure, there is a mix of articles examining perils and regions, industry issues, and articles discussing what’s coming up for our industry.

Within perils and regions, Exposure looks at opportunities for U.S. and European flood, the effect extra-tropical transitioning has on typhoons in Japan, and the impact that secondary hazards have, such as liquefaction, and the earthquake sequencing that hit the low-seismicity area of Canterbury, New Zealand in 2010 and 2011.

The magazine also tackles issues around Solvency II, the emergence of the “grey swan” event, why reinsurers are opting to buy or build their own insurance-linked securities fund management capabilities, and wraps up with Robert Muir-Wood, chief research officer for RMS, explaining how insurers can help drive the resilience analytics revolution.
