Image showing the end-to-end risk reporting process. Policy data and asset data is cleansed then grouped then uploaded to model runs. During this ESG creation and assumptions also feeds into model runs. The model runs flow into adjustments, proxies and risk calibration then back into capital modelling.  The software tools and platform available at each stage are cleansing: DataValidator, Grouping: Cluster Model, ESG Creation: STAR ESG, Assumptions: Assumption management utilities, Emblem, PulseModel, Model Runs: RiskAgilityFM, HPC, vGrid, Azure, Proxies: RiskAgility PM and Capital Model: RiskAgility EC and RiskAgility SF

Solutions for Life is made up of four key components:


Best of breed tools

We believe that you need flexibility in choosing your software tools, building on components already in place and selecting best of breed solutions where existing systems are not fit for purpose or where gaps exist.

We provide market-leading tools specifically designed to support your end-to-end reporting needs, using a modular system to facilitate a best of breed approach, enabling you to leverage the investment in tools that you have already made.

Flexible infrastructure

Infrastructure options have evolved. The evolution started by moving from desktop to data centre, but now the data centre is moving into the cloud. The vast majority of our products can be deployed either on premise or managed in the cloud. In addition, we are gradually making many of our products available as a service on either a subscription or usage fee basis.

Solutions for Life infrastructure options include:

vGrid

Combined with RiskAgility FM, vGrid provides fully scalable, on-demand access to compute resource, delivered as a fully managed service by Willis Towers Watson.

vPlace

A one-stop online workplace portal which enables a range of Willis Towers Watson's leading insurance software products, and other supplementary actuarial programs, to be delivered as a fully managed service.

Microsoft HPC

Access to a fixed, on-premise, high-performance computing (HPC) grid for distributing model calculations across calculation cores in a physical data centre.

Microsoft Azure

Provides fully scalable, on-demand access to compute resource in conjunction with a Microsoft Azure Cloud subscription.


Integration platform

A complete solution requires a level of integration and automation to orchestrate the end-to-end reporting process and should be subject to mandatory levels of governance. Only then can genuine efficiencies and new capabilities be delivered to provide an assurance around analytics that can truly drive business decisions.

In response to this issue, we developed Unify — an enterprise risk and actuarial systems integration platform. Unify transforms financial modelling and reporting processes through a comprehensive integration, automated process management and governance solution.

Unify

Automates and governs the end-to-end financial modeling and reporting process by integrating multiple software applications into user-defined workflows.
