NEWARK, Ca–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RMS®a Moody’s Analytics company and global leader in risk modeling and solutions, announces the launch of a new application, UnderwriteIQhosted on the cloud-based RMS intelligent risk platform. UnderwriteIQ enables underwriters to have better risk control by bringing together risk, exposure and loss data in the underwriting process at the point of decision – all based on science and RMS model data. The new application will allow underwriters to price with confidence, make consistent risk decisions and improve operational efficiency.

The application is hosted on the modular and unified RMS Intelligent Risk Platform (IRP). The platform provides proprietary and tertiary data analytics to quickly generate high-resolution risk insights through applications that meet underwriting and portfolio management needs.

Moe Khosravy, Executive Vice President, Software and Platform, RMS, said, “The growth in adoption of the RMS intelligent risk management platform has been phenomenal. A significant number of customers benefit from the secure cloud-based platform that provides superior advanced analytics through a single holistic enterprise risk management system, without the hardware and software maintenance required for on-premises offerings. IRP easily integrates into existing systems and its modular design allows users to license and use only required applications or APIs. »

UnderwriteIQ is the latest addition to the RMS IQ suite of applications, which also includes TreatyIQ and ExposureIQ.

The TreatyIQ app allows users to quickly design and analyze simple and complex treaty program structures, as well as import and leverage any modeled loss data, tailored to a user’s view of risk . An intuitive, underwriter-centric user experience supports custom pricing and capital metrics and can display quick aggregation results, with analytics on overall positions and venture capital performance.

ExposureIQ allows users to manage both reinsurance and insurance accumulations in a single application, creating structures that represent their business hierarchies in an intuitive way. The app also provides near real-time visualization of catastrophic events using a powerful mapping module that directly integrates RMS Event Response and RMS HWind data.

ExposureIQ makes enterprise-wide exposure management faster and more accurate, enabling easy identification of key drivers of portfolio accumulations and trends, and deterministic loss analysis in any region of the world.

Michael Steel, Managing Director, RMS, concluded: “The RMS Intelligent Risk Platform has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2018, as evidenced by its adoption in the insurance market. Powered by RMS models, science and technology, UnderwriteIQ is a welcome addition to the existing IQ application suite, delivering business value, end-to-end consistency and improved customer experience.
