Catastrophe risk management firm RMS has expanded its Asia Pacific presence with a new Singapore office.

The office, led by Paul Burgess, senior director of client development, joins the RMS offices in Delhi, Beijing and Tokyo in the Asia Pacific region.

The Singapore office will serve existing Singapore-based clients as well as new clients and partners. Existing Asia Pacific ecosystem partners include recently announced Asia-focused catastrophe modellers Catalytics, COMBUS, OYO Group and Australia and Asia Pacific specialist Risk Frontiers, whose models are being implemented on RMS(one).

Jason Futers, senior vice president and head of Europe and Asia sales at RMS, said: “RMS has long been committed to the high-growth Asia Pacific market. Having Paul on the ground to lead the Singapore office, working closely with our eight-person support team in Singapore and India, will deepen our relationships with existing clients and partners.”

RMS client Catlin, expressed support for the company’s growing presence and continued commitment to the Asia Pacific region.

“Catlin is delighted that RMS has continued its commitment to Asia-Pacific with the opening of its Singapore office,” said Mark Newman, chief executive officer of Catlin Asia-Pacific. “This region is now very significant for the insurance and reinsurance communities at large. We look forward to working with RMS on exciting new initiatives that will really push the boundaries of risk management in the region.”
