RMS welcomes back familiar face to lead UK insurance business


RMS, the catastrophe risk modeling company, has welcomed back a familiar face to lead its UK insurance business. 

Jason Futers joins RMS as managing director from Insurdata, a company he co-founded in 2017. He built his career at RMS between 2002 and 2015, serving as chief executive officer and board member of RMS Japan, regional head of sales for Europe and Asia, and head of emerging risk innovation.

Futers has considerable experience in creating and managing multi-disciplinary teams within start-ups and mature businesses and has held roles in client success, technology, sales, and product management for companies in the UK, Europe, US and Asia.

Before launching Insurdata he was the founder of Huupe.com, a personal and professional development platform, and also non-executive director of AgRisk, formerly the Asia Risk Center. 

Mike Steel, global head of business development at RMS, said: “Jason has been continually at the forefront of advanced analytics and in his new role at RMS he will be in a position to champion delivering analytics, data, and technology to the insurance and reinsurance markets in the UK.”

Futers said: “The embedding of cohesive, state-of-the-art technology at the heart of the business has led to a paradigm shift at RMS since I was last working here, which is truly inspirational. What has stayed the same, however, is the continued commitment to excellent customer service. RMS is uniquely positioned to lead the development of an open, unified platform for global risk and I’m excited to be working with clients to realise these benefits for them.”
