Newark, Calif. — Risk Management Solutions (RMS), a catastrophe risk management technology company, unveiled its new portfolio management platform, Miu, which supports the trading of insurance risk using RMS’ catastrophe risk analytics. Miu allows users to quantify and tailor a portfolio of catastrophe risk positions packaged in any form: catastrophe bonds, over-the-counter derivatives, sidecars, industry loss warranties and various forms of reinsurance.

A risk profile for every live catastrophe bond is available on the platform, so users simply have to tick a box to add a new insurance-linked security (ILS) to their portfolio. By providing a transparent view of the sensitivities a risk position has to individual perils, such as U.S. hurricanes or Japanese earthquakes, and its correlations to other positions, Miu is designed to enable users to include insurance risk, however it is packaged, alongside more traditional fixed-income products in their portfolios.
