Assessment of earthquake risk at timescales most applicable to (re)insurance applications.
Extensive stochastic event sets capture the full range of potential earthquakes to produce a comprehensive representation of events at key return periods including tail risk.
Evaluate potential hot spots and drivers of risk in earthquake portfolios for effective risk differentiation strategies.
The RMS earthquake model suite provides the information you need to understand, evaluate, and manage earthquake risk around the world.
Gain deep understanding of regional differences, including tectonic settings, built environments, and market conditions.
Assess the spectrum of potential earthquake losses with models that leverage computational power and data-driven approaches to reduce uncertainty.
See the potential loss impacts of secondary perils such as liquefaction, landslide, fire following earthquake, and tsunami in our complete view of earthquake risk.
Benefit from country-specific expertise with models built in close collaboration with on-the-ground scientific agencies, local engineers, and researchers.
North America Earthquake Models
The North America Earthquake Models are founded on a seamless seismic source model covering the whole of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. They provide a consistent framework for modeling loss from location to portfolio level, within a city or across country borders.
Latin America and Caribbean Earthquake Models
The RMS® Latin America and Caribbean Earthquake Models provide comprehensive coverage for modeling earthquake risk in 40 countries and territories. The models are based on a custom-built, region-wide catalog of events with seismic sources covering a mix of crustal, thrust, and intra-slab features. A large variety of exposure types can be modeled including a set of standard, industrial facility, and marine cargo vulnerability curves.
Asia-Pacific Earthquake Models
The RMS suite of Asia-Pacific earthquake models leverages a substantial amount of detailed damage statistics and claims data from recent events to offer a comprehensive view of risk for the region. Currently RMS offers models that cover Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam), Japan, New Zealand, Australia, India, China, South Korea, Guam, and Taiwan.
Europe Earthquake Model
The Europe Earthquake Model is built upon a seamless seismic source model covering 26 countries, islands, and municipalities, providing a consistent framework for modeling loss from the location to the portfolio level, within a city or across country borders. The underlying seismic-source framework provides continuous coverage across Europe, enabling the management of multi-country portfolios on a country-by-country or regional basis.
RMS Liquefaction Update
The new and advanced approach to modeling liquefaction, a high-gradient hazard, gives more confidence to underwriters in pricing the risk from ground-related damage, location by location, and to portfolio managers in managing risk accumulations in areas prone to liquefaction.
