I invite you to explore the latest digital edition of EXPOSURE Magazine, which also hit the streets of Monte Carlo as a print edition for those attending Les Rendez-Vous de Septembre, and will be available at RMS events over the coming months.

There is a clear mission for EXPOSURE, which is “… to provide insight and analysis to help insurance and risk professionals innovate, adapt and deliver.” And change is in the air for all businesses in the industry, whether it is developing new opportunities, getting products to market faster, being more agile and efficient, or using data-driven insight to transform decision making.

Exposure Cover pge

Let’s start with new opportunities. In EXPOSURE, we look at agricultural risk in China and how to navigate a fast-growing insurance sector; the role of risk modeling in strengthening resilience in cities and the potential for risk capital providers; one of the largest untapped insurance markets – U.S. flood, and how modeling can transform the casualty market.

To expand the horizon further, EXPOSURE gets behind-the-scenes of the Version 17 RMS North America Earthquake Models, to see what the model means from a pricing and exposure management perspective.

Increasing efficiency, lowering costs, and delivering growing value to customers is central to Albert Benchimol, CEO of AXIS Capital in the EXPOSURE Big Interview. And to get to a “10X” efficiency boost, a new article invites businesses to take a “moonshot”, by embracing technology and data analytics that gets closer to the risk and the customer.

Hurricane Harvey had taken hold as we went to press, and Robert Muir-Wood and Paul Wilson from RMS look at Harvey in terms of its consequences as a “Super Cat” event, as its longer-term effects become known.

EXPOSURE is a magazine that welcomes strong opinion and industry debate, and for this edition we welcomed the contribution from a wide range of voices from Aviva, Barbican, Ed, 100 Resilient Cities, PERILS AG, SCOR, Swiss Re, Tarian, Tokio Marine Kiln, XL Catlin and more.

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.
