We have started the search for 2 Catastrophe Analysts to join our team in London, as we bring catastrophe modelling in-house.
The team is responsible for the modelling and assessment of our exposures across all lines of business written by UK General Insurance globally. This includes understanding our exposures to catastrophe events across the world and developing our capability for new and emerging risks such as cyber, to drive action and insight to inform our underwriting strategies.
A major project is underway, which will provide an innovative, and largely automated Exposure Management and Catastrophe Modelling environment in-house. Phase 1 of the project is nearly complete, which is why we are now growing our team.
This is an especially broad role, across all commercial classes of insurance, to support catastrophe pricing, and to build out the workstreams.
The opportunity to specialise will also be available once the team is embedded. The team now sits within our Quantum department, so access to data engineering, data scientists, and analytics will be a part of this role.Responsibilities will include:
Skills and experience we are looking for:
- Reviewing and modelling exposure data using 3rd party and proprietary catastrophe models and tools
- Working closely with the underwriters to interpret cat model-based analysis for risk selection, for multiple territories worldwide in UKGI
- Supporting development of our exposure management techniques for non-modelled perils/territories and improving existing techniques (e.g. Flood Catchment assessment)
- Supporting the monthly roll-up process and associated reporting requirements for the Commercial division, including monitoring against internal and external limits
- Prepare regulatory returns on an adhoc basis, taking ownership of at least one
- Carrying out data quality analytics and working with underwriters to improve the completeness, resolution and appropriateness of key data inputs
What will you get for this role?
- A background of working in a Catastrophe Modelling team in either a syndicate or General Insurer supporting a P&C portfolio
- Experience with AIR models is preferred
- Practical experience of portfolio roll-up, reporting and communication
- SQL programming or another coding language
- Strong understanding of key mathematical and statistical concepts, and of Cat metrics such as PMLs, AALs and to communicate them to a non-technical audience
- Attention to detail, with an inquisitive, analytical mind-set - a passion for pulling things apart and understanding both how they work and how they get used
