Risk Modelling Services

Quantitative insights for business intelligence

Climate change, demographic shifts, consumer sentiment, economies in flux—risks come in many forms. For organisations, while risks may seem ever-present, they don’t have to be unmanageable.

At PwC, we believe that risk is an opportunity to drive growth and if you can measure it, you can optimise it. Connecting a diverse team of actuaries, data scientists, climate scientists and financial engineers with expertise in risk quantification, we can enhance business decision-making through actuarial and risk modelling, and help our clients act decisively on the issues that really matter.

Our risk modelling services

Actuarial Function

We provide clients with a scalable, variable-cost model for actuarial function operations. Our experts can help build and supplement actuarial teams that deliver value and provide assurance to boards of insurance companies through HOAF and Reviewing Actuary services under the Domestic Actuarial Regime in Ireland.

Risk and Capital

We build risk management frameworks that are genuinely interconnected with the business, tying revenue, risk, capital and operations together in a meaningful and insightful way while maximising capital efficiency and managing risks within accepted tolerances.

Climate Risk Modelling

ESG represents risks and opportunities that will impact a company’s ability to create long-term value, including climate change and resource scarcity; diversity and inclusion (D&I), safety issues and data security; and board diversity, executive pay and tax transparency. To demonstrate progress, these risks and opportunities should be translated into measurable outcomes. From assessing transition risk in an investment portfolio to determining how physical real estate footprints can be impacted by climate change, our ESG and Climate Risk models can help turn high-level strategies into quantifiable targets.

Insurance Risk Modelling

Our Insurance Modelling team helps companies solve complex business problems, navigate disruption, manage regulatory change and leverage technology to deliver insights across the insurance value chain. Our team has extensive experience assisting life, property and casualty (P&C), health and reinsurance companies with Finance, Actuarial, Investments and Risk (FAIR) modernisation and reporting; Risk and Capital optimisation; Central Bank authorisation and change-of-business plan applications; mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and deals support; and Underwriting, Pricing and Claims optimisation.

Corporate Risk Modelling

Corporate entities often retain a significant amount of risk generally serviced by a small internal risk management team—one that may not have the investment, resources or tools needed to manage or optimise risk. We help clients modernise risk management by improving operations through technology, incorporating enhanced data analytics and modelling capabilities, and redesigning reporting approaches to enhance the strategic management of their risks.
