Catastrophe risk management firm RMS announced last week that it is expanding 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 as RMS continues to build momentum in the region. Existing Asia Pacific ecosystem partners include recently announced Asia-focused catastrophe modelers Catalytics, COMBUS, OYO Group and Australia and Asia Pacific specialist Risk Frontiers, whose models are being implemented on RMS(one).

“RMS has long been committed to the high-growth Asia Pacific market,” said Jason Futers, SVP and head of Europe and Asia sales at RMS, in statement. Futers said that having Burgess on the ground in Singapore and working closely with an eight-person support team in Singapore and India, will deepen relationships with existing clients and partners.
