Please would it be possible to post the following job on to metjobs. It is a permanent full time Analyst position with RMS



Position: Analyst, RiskMarkets


Do you know that there is a 6% chance that a hurricane will cause $75 billion of insured losses next year?   And that there is a 1% chance that an earthquake will cause $50 billion of insured loss?  We do.  We are Risk Management Solutions (RMS), and we build the simulation models that allow insurers and investors to figure out the odds of losing money due to catastrophes:  natural catastrophes (hurricane, earthquake, flood), terrorism, pandemic, and longevity.  We are dealing with massive simulations and are therefore on the cutting edge of high performance grid and cloud computing.
RiskMarkets is our dedicated capital markets division, and at 30-strong, it's one of the largest dedicated insurance linked securities (ILS) teams in the market.  We pride ourselves on our ability to provide innovative, effective solutions to our clients. 
“Miu” is our ILS modelling platform which, with 25 investors and intermediaries using it, is established as the market leading product less than 3 years after we first had the idea.  Miu enables ILS investors to quickly see how their assets are correlated, and to gain detailed insights when making investment decisions.
Our Advisory team provides consulting services to potential transaction sponsors (re/insurers, corporates) to help them make the best use of ILS within their full risk management framework. We then provide expert modelling to help investors understand the risks at the time a bond is issued.
Paradex is our Index business, providing parametric loss estimates, determining the magnitude of potential loss from the measurements taken during a catastrophe – wind speeds and ground shaking. 
We were delighted to be named ‘Professional Service Provider of the Year’ at the Worldwide Reinsurance Awards for 2010, recognising our work in the ILS sector.

Objective of role of Analyst, RiskMarkets:

The Analyst will be responsible for leading the analytics on ILS projects, including but not limited to Miu development and characterization, Advisory risk analyses, Paradex index development and support, feasibility studies, resets, event calculations, and basis risk studies.  The Analyst will also be responsible for documentation on project work, and will also be required to work with clients through the full project process.  This role is likely to include some international travel.

  • Work with our development partners on Miu product releases, gaining experience of the full project lifecycle from the initial client design sessions and feature specification through to release.
