“COMBUS is delighted to be able to bring our suite of Australian models to the Q:HELM platform to provide greater access within this open-source and transparent marketplace,” comments Will Gardner, Managing Director, COMBUS.

The COMBUS models provide insight into natural and man-made disasters across Australia, ranging from bushfires to earthquakes, according to a QOMPLX statement. COMBUS built its simulation models to examine the magnitude of large events and the frequency of smaller events, providing greater understanding in estimating and predicting risk.

“The need for more rigorous and data-driven insights around environmental disasters around the world continues to grow,” comments Steve Smith, Director of Product and Modeling, QOMPLX. “The COMBUS models allow our customers to increase their geographic coverage for trusted risk analytics,”
