With version 7.3, “the platform has evolved to offer deeper access to a variety of databases and risk intelligence that enables users to quickly evaluate and mitigate the risks most salient to their business,” the firm added.
“These latest improvements to MetaRisk 7.3 further emphasise our commitment to providing key decision-makers with a faster, deeper and more sophisticated view of the complex risk drivers throughout their business,” said Donald Mango, vice chairman of enterprise analytics for Guy Carpenter.
