Risk Management Solutions – Why Work With Us?

There’s a 1% chance an earthquake will cause $50 billion of insured loss within the next 12 months and a 5% chance that a hurricane will cause $60 billion of insured losses next year. At RMS, we turn risks into real numbers. How? By building simulation models that allow insurers and investors to understand and manage their global risks--from hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires, to cyberattacks, terror attacks, and pandemics. Why? We want to build a more resilient world, and we’re on a mission to help make every risk known.

Insurers, reinsurers, investors, financial institutions, governments, and NGOs trust RMS solutions to better understand and manage catastrophic risks. RMS was founded in 1989 by Stanford scientists who created our first model for California Earthquake. Today, RMS has 1,350 employees across 16 offices in the US, London, Bermuda, Zurich, India, China, Japan, Singapore, and Australia, 17 patents, and over 1,000 products and models now covering six continents.

RMS helped pioneer the natural catastrophe model market we now lead – and we continue to innovate. In May 2019, we announced RMS Risk Intelligence™ (RI), an open-standard platform for strategic risk management. Through this purpose-built platform, clients can tap into RMS HD models, rich data layers, intuitive applications and APIs that simply integrate into existing enterprise systems to support business decisions across underwriting, risk selection, mitigation, and portfolio management.

How we understand and manage risk affects everyone and our passion is nothing less than creating a more resilient world through a better understanding of catastrophic events. Join our team of leading scientists, developers, industry experts, and world-class professionals. Together, RMSers make a difference on a truly global scale.

Where Others See Uncertainty, We See Opportunity 

At RMS, our success is measured in making a positive impact in the communities in which we live and work. Since our founding at Stanford University more than 25 years ago, we have maintained an enduring commitment to our philanthropic partners and our mission to empower the future for vulnerable communities across the globe. 

We interviewed our Director of Model Development Program Management on her favorite RMS employee perks and what she enjoys about the RMS team culture. 

Corporate Social Responsibility at RMS

How do we give back? 

From earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods to terrorism and infectious diseases. One part of our job at RMS is to help financial institutions and public agencies understand, quantify, and manage risk. The second part is taking a step back to truly understand catastrophic risk and help build more resilient communities around the world through innovative and sustainable change. 

We support our communities; partnering with local charities and global non-profits on RMS service programs because we understand the impact that corporate resources can have on spreading awareness and building resilience. 

Our partners in Philanthropy




2019 Impact Trek with Build Change

Every year, a team of RMS employees and clients work together to help support our longstanding partner, Build Change, on how to ensure vulnerable communities benefit from safer housing, retrofitting and sound construction methods. The skills that both our employees and clients bring are very complementary to these tasks, and knowledge of risk modeling and analytics, and how to use this knowledge to develop resilience is highly valued.

Following successful visits to Haiti and Nepal in recent years, in 2019 RMS Impact Trek visited the Philippines for the first time, with the team on the ground in the country between March 17–25.

2018 Impact Trek with Build Change

In April of 2015, a devastating earthquake hit Nepal leaving entire villages destroyed and thousands of people homeless. RMS employees and clients traveled to Nepal in March of 2018 and worked with our partner, Build Change on our 4th annual Impact Trek.

    Continue being associated with RMS for more than 2 decades, have been fortunate enough to be working with smart individuals of multiple academic disciplines and great team of people, where you intellectually challenged every day, get to add real value to the clients we serve and feel proud of making an impact.

    RMS, being a leading catastrophe risk modeling organization and comprising multi-disciplinary nature of the work, we are surrounded with exceptionally smart and passionate individuals, with expertise in specific fields, willing to solve problems in their expert areas, who would like to make an impact. One of the advantage at RMS is that you can expand your horizon in case you possess the capability to go from one field of to another and accommodate new technologies to solve new risk that keep on changes .


    Nothing to high light. On positive side, you feel addicted to solving scientific challenges.
