Extend your perspective on underwriting risks to ensure robust portfolios. With sustainable portfolio management, you can understand longer-term exposure accumulations coordinated with growth strategies that consider climate change.
A New Horizon in Portfolio Risk Management
The annual perspective on current risk for portfolio management is insufficient in the era of climate change. Market leaders are considering how climate change-related physical risks will impact the quality of their portfolios 10-20 years in the future. Incorporating this near- to medium-term climate risk will demonstrate leadership with a differentiated book of business and extended outlook on risk to provide comprehensive underwriting insight, risk mitigation decisioning, portfolio growth planning, and reinsurance and capital management.

Why Moody’s RMS
