“We are honored to be chosen as the Latin America Risk Modeler of the Year by Reactions’ judges and the Latin America market. The award is a testament to the market’s appetite for our risk models, analytics and insight,” said regional head for Latin America at RMS, Victor Roldán. “Our commitment to the region has never been stronger. In the past year, we delivered a wealth of new risk modeling capability and insight to help our clients protect and expand their business, including the latest RMS Mexico Earthquake model and the RMS North Atlantic Hurricane models released in April 2017. We are also gaining momentum in the market with Exposure Manager and have just released our next generation modeling solution, Risk Modeler on the RMS(one) platform. And there is more to come, including our new model for Mexico Pacific hurricane which will be out in 2018.”
