ILS and reinsurance-linked investments firm gains comprehensive exposure insights quickly and easily across portfolios
LONDON, U.K. -
March 16, 2017 -
RMS, the world’s leading catastrophe risk management firm, today announced that Securis Investment Partners LLP has licensed Exposure Manager to streamline and strengthen its portolfio management.
Securis Investment Partners LLP, London (“Securis”), is the first asset manager operating in the insurance-linked securities (ILS) sector to license Exposure Manager, giving the ILS and reinsurance-linked investments specialist a first-mover advantage in a market where financial structures are more complex than those seen in the traditional insurance markets.
Exposure Manager, which is the the first solution on the RMS(one)® platform, enables firms to maximize the value from their exposure data, helping them to understand their exposures in detail across their global portfolios to manage their risk concentrations more consistently.
Herbie Lloyd, head of insurance, Securis, said: “We are delighted to include Exposure Manager within Securis’ expanding suite of analytical capabilities. The current capability and indeed the development vision for this product is extremely complementary with Securis’ strategy to continuously develop cutting edge portfolio management capability.”
In the aftermath of catastrophe events, firms must grapple with vast quantities of data to understand the proximity of their risk clusters to hazard zones. RMS has designed Exposure Manager to make this process more efficient. Calculating key metrics, such as exposed limit, is quicker and more straightforward. The analytics are provided in visual format and are fully customizable, enabling firms to progressively fine-tune their insights to make faster decisions. Powered by the RMS(one) platform which uses the RMS Financial Model to process complex financial structures and contractual terms, Exposure Manager produces analytics that help identify a firm’s risk hotspots and growth opportunities.
“What distinguishes Exposure Manager from other portfolio management solutions is that it’s built on a big data and analytics platform architected specifically so that risk-carriers can interrogate both exposures and modeled losses in one analytics environment,” said Farhana Alarakhiya, vice president, software products at RMS. Exposure Manager can process large volumes of data while also producing analytics at any granularity. This means our clients can create risk insights across their entire risk management process to drive more informed decision-making.”
Exposure Manager eliminates labor-intensive processes currently required to produce regular exposure reports and allows users to focus on generating exposure insights through powerful, automated analytics and share them across the entire organization with greater confidence in the numbers.
