AIR Worldwide: Catlin Selects AIR's Touchstone to Better Manage Global Catastrophe Risk

For Immediate Release:

Catlin Selects AIR's Touchstone to Better Manage
Global Catastrophe Risk

BOSTON, May 21, 2014 - Catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide (AIR) today
announced that Catlin Group Limited has added AIR's next-generation
catastrophe risk management platform, Touchstone®, to its suite of licensed
products. Catlin manages Syndicate 2003, the largest syndicate at Lloyd's
with £1.43 billion of capacity (about 8 percent of the Lloyd's market) and a
recognized leader in nearly all classes. AIR is a member of the Verisk
Insurance Solutions group at Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK).

"Catlin has long had a deep understanding of the risk we assume through our
involvement in scientific research, such as the Catlin Arctic Survey and the
current Catlin Seaview Survey," said Paul Jardine, COO of Catlin. "We take
such research and associated technology very seriously because we believe
that it empowers our underwriters and leads to better management of our
exposures and capital allocation. After an exhaustive review of AIR's
offerings and particularly their next-generation platform, Touchstone, we
concluded that their commitment to sound science and engineering, reliable
software, and first-class client support fits well with our corporate
objective of expanding in key insurance and reinsurance markets, including
continental Europe, Bermuda, the U.S., and Asia-Pacific."

"We're delighted that, in addition to choosing AIR as their long-term provider
of catastrophe risk management software, Catlin decided to expand its license
to include Touchstone," commented Dr. Milan Simic, senior vice president and
managing director of international operations at AIR Worldwide. "This is yet
another confirmation that AIR is the catastrophe modeling provider of choice
in key insurance and reinsurance markets, and we're extremely pleased that
Catlin will be joining the ever-growing family of Touchstone users in the
London market and internationally."

"The fact that an organization of Catlin's caliber and track record of
investment in research and technology has selected Touchstone is a major vote
of confidence for our approach to model and software development," added Dr.
Simic. "We're already working side by side with Catlin to help roll out our
modeling solutions across its organization, including its global underwriting
centers."
