RMS(one) is designed as an open exposure and risk management platform, where users will be able to express the full range of their exposures and contracts and implement their own analytics on a purpose-built and highly scalable cloud-based platform. With RMS(one), the industry will not only have unprecedented flexibility, but can implement truly real-time and dynamic risk management processes leading to more resilient and profitable portfolios.
