The platform aims to offer a unified view of risk for reinsurers, brokers and insurance-linked securities investors, streamlining communication and accelerating transaction closures.

Furthermore, cedents leveraging the CatX platform can conduct simulations to determine the optimal capital structures, comparing traditional and alternative sources of capacity.

This feature is expected to significantly aid in benchmarking and strategic financial planning within the insurance sector.

CatX CEO Benedict Altier said: “Moody’s RMS is a trusted name in insurance risk modelling. We are excited to utilise their models and technology to assist our insurance and investment partners in enhancing their risk placement processes.

“This strategic partnership emphasises our shared goal to improve investor access to top-tier modelling for insurance-linked securities.”
