Report this content

Simplitium®, a financial services technology provider and wholly owned subsidiary of Cinnober Financial Technology, has today announced the release of reinsurance capabilities in ModEx®. The implementation expands the scope of ModEx to include the financial structures needed to model reinsurance contracts, offering support for: facultative, quota share, surplus share, per risk excess of loss and catastrophe excess of loss. This enables firms to develop a greater understanding of their risks through more comprehensive analysis.

ModEx is the multi-vendor catastrophe modelling platform for the insurance and reinsurance market, delivered by Simplitium and operated on the Oasis Loss Modelling Framework (LMF). The implementation of reinsurance represents a significant step forward in the evolution of ModEx as it brings highly sought-after functionality to the modelling platform. Open Exposure Data (OED), launched by Simplitium in September 2018, provides the robust exposure import format needed for the Oasis LMF to implement reinsurance. OED is now fully documented and validated in ModEx.

“Reinsurance represented a major gap in the Oasis offering which has now been filled. The implementation of reinsurance in ModEx is a significant milestone as the platform develops and expands its offering,” says Dr. Matthew Jones, Head of Insurance Product Development at Simplitium. “Crucially, this implementation strengthens ModEx’s position in the market as a viable alternative, or complement, to the incumbent modelling platforms.”

ModEx creates an ecosystem in which model vendors can make their models, hazard data and analytics available to the industry via a single platform. The ModEx platform features catastrophe models from 8 different model vendors and a rich set of hazard data products.
