RPS Analytics

RPS CAT Analytics provides in-house access to industry- leading modeling companies. With Risk Management Solutions’ (RMS) RiskBrowser, we can analyze U.S. properties’ exposure to the catastrophic perils of earthquake, hurricane and severe convective storm. RMS catastrophe models incorporate the latest science, over 30 years of dedicated catastrophe risk research and development, and partnerships with local institutions and leading regional experts. With the ever increasing risk caused by flooding within the U.S., RPS CAT Analytics has licensed KatRisk’s SpatialKat model to quantify flood risk from inland flood and storm surge. KatRisk’s model is a high-resolution, event-based, probabilistic risk model for the continental U.S. that computes flooding from all sources, including regional weather patterns, snowmelt, and hurricane-induced precipitation and storm surge.

Catastrophe modeling aids in the development of a comprehensive risk management and preparedness strategy by bringing attention to the potential outcomes of hazard events that may affect your insured’s portfolio. Through modeling and data analysis, we can identify where your insured needs to improve their data in order to accurately capture and assess risk. RPS CAT Analytics provides a comprehensive, consultative report for all stakeholders (insured, retailer, broker and carrier), which includes exposure summary tables, exposure map, top locations, average annual loss (AAL), probable maximum losses (PMLs) for key return periods, and top drivers of loss and hazard data, including noncertified flood zones, distance to coast, distance to fault and liquefaction potential.

In 2019, RPS CAT Analytics modeled schedules that ranged from one location to over 50,000 locations, with our largest value in excess of $42 billion. These schedules consisted of some of the following top industries: public sector, real estate and hospitality, nonprofit, religious business, higher education, construction,
and entertainment.
