Test Environment

Analytical excellence, and the capability to arrive at and support an independent view of risk, is supported by Validus Research.

Since our formation, Validus has consistently invested in building a team of thought leaders and expert practitioners focused on the ability to better model and better interpret the risks we face.

Our centres of excellence in New York, Waterloo (Canada) and Minneapolis share expertise in physical, mathematical and data sciences. Teams are dominated by domain experts holding advanced degrees in Atmospheric Sciences, Seismology, Civil Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics.

Alongside the Applied Research function, our teams of Analysts interpret, investigate and provide clear insights on each risk. This ensures a responsive base of consistent and deep understanding of risk.

The Research team has a strong track record of collaboration with clients, sharing both our independent views and ‘best practices’ for the assessment and management of the risks we share.
