EQECAT Releases RQE (Risk Quantification & Engineering) Catastrophe Modeling Platform

Today EQECAT announced the release of its RQETM (Risk Quantification & Engineering) catastrophe risk modeling platform that enables clients to quantify and manage the potential financial impact of natural hazards.

RQE version 13 is the result of a multiple-year initiative that involved a significant degree of collaboration with clients, prospects, and industry experts and is the single largest release of its kind. While there are many improvements within the new platform, EQECAT has preserved and leveraged its robust methodology and unique treatment of uncertainty, which are the hallmarks of EQECAT risk modeling.

“We are thrilled that RQE will provide significant and increased value to the global re/insurance market,” commented Bill Keogh, president of EQECAT. “With so much that differentiates us competitively, we look forward to satisfying the pent up demand for our analytics. Having collaborated closely with leaders from virtually every segment and geography in the global re/insurance business, we are confident that RQE will disrupt the status quo of catastrophe risk modeling. All of us at EQECAT thank our existing and new clients for their collaboration throughout this development process and their confidence in RQE.”

Highlights of RQE v. 13 include:

  • Comprehensive portfolio aggregation
  • New financial model
  • Improved user interface
  • Improved import workflow
  • New database schema with 4-tier hierarchy
  • Significant improvements in import run times
  • Catastrophe model updates

Comprehensive Portfolio Aggregation

Standard output includes both Event Loss Table (ELT) for occurrence-based metrics and Year Loss Table (YLT) for aggregate loss metrics. 3G Correlation™ allows users to aggregate one or more YLTs to create an aggregate YLT. Reports can be generated from the YLT for annual losses, Exceedance Probability (EP) curves and the associated ELT.

New Financial Model

The implementation of the new 4-tier database hierarchy facilitates enhancements that enable more complete loss modeling for excess and surplus (E&S) lines, "step" policies, and other complex financial structures.

Improved User Interface

The release offers users significant improvements to the import process, exposure management and report selection to provide an enhanced user experience.

Improved Import Workflow

RQE v. 13 includes a new import workflow to enable easier input and editing of exposure data.

New Database Schema

This release includes an improved uniform database schema with 4-tier hierarchy at the account and portfolio level.

Significant Improvements in Import Run-time

Clients will experience faster run-times with new and improved import capabilities.

Catastrophe Model Updates

RQE v. 13 includes the update of 178 country/peril models including vulnerability, hazard, and correlation/simulation updates. Hazard and vulnerability have been updated for a number of models to incorporate new scientific research and detailed analyses of claims and exposure data from recent events. Correlation and simulation updates were made to all country/peril models to allow the ability to combine multiple portfolios without the need to re-analyze, using 3G Correlation™.

EQECAT will host a multiple-day conference to enable clients to own their view of risk by providing a thorough understanding of RQE v.13 and the entire EQECAT catastrophe modeling process. The catastrophe modeling conference is being held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 9 – 11, 2013 at the Ritz-Carlton.
