Catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide is proud to announce that it has been named “Best Latin America Risk Modeler” for the second year in a row at the 2016 Reactions Latin America Awards held on May 19 in Miami. The Reactions Awards highlight leading players and innovation from within the Latin American re/insurance market.
“AIR Worldwide has once again shown itself to be at the top of its game when it comes to modeling and understanding the risks its clients face in Latin America,” said Christopher Munro, Americas editor at Reactions. “We at Reactions congratulate AIR Worldwide for the work they have done and are very pleased to present them with the award for Latin America Risk Modeler of the Year for the second year in a row.”
“It is an honor to be recognized as the best risk modeling firm in Latin America by leaders of the Latin American insurance and reinsurance industries,” said Bill Churney, President at AIR Worldwide. “We have committed significant resources to deliver the most scientifically credible and advanced models for this region. This award signals that our hard work and dedication to produce best in class models for this region is truly helping companies to better own their risk.”
In July 2015, AIR released updated South America earthquake models, which were significantly enhanced with the ability to assess tsunami risk and the addition of an Ecuador earthquake model. At the same time AIR released new flood hazard maps for Brazil. These innovations demonstrate AIR’s continued investment and focus on being the leading risk modeler in Latin America.
