Michael Steel, General Manager, RMS said: “Andrew brings extensive experience in the insurance industry, as well as a thorough understanding of the diverse risk requirements in Asia Pacific, where he has built industry-leading teams and capabilities that have delivered deep insights and added value to insurers and reinsurers. We are delighted to welcome Andrew and look forward to the positive impact he will have on RMS and Moody’s Analytics clients.

He brings a wealth of experience and his appointment is a testimony of Moody’s Analytics’ investment in our regions, as we continue to invest in our commitment to add value to our clients’ evolving needs.”
Andrew Hare, Managing Director Asia Pacific, added: “Climate change and natural catastrophes, such as flood, fire, earthquake, and typhoon, continue to wreak havoc on the Asia-Pacific region. Following the devastating effects of the Covid-19 outbreak as well as chronic supply-chain disruptions, heightened cyber-attacks, social and economic inflation, and global geopolitical uncertainty, many economies and communities in the region are continuing their long road to recovery. RMS, with the combination of capabilities with Moody’s Analytics, is uniquely positioned to provide a deep understanding of the region’s evolving risk profile and increase confidence in risk management and selection. I am thrilled to join the team to deliver an integrated risk assessment strategy that will help clients and communities decode risk and unlock opportunity.”
