On behalf of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), welcome to the website of the NTU’s Institute of Catastrophe Risk Management (ICRM)!

ICRM was launched in January 2010 by Mr Heng Swee Kiat, Managing Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Mr Derrick Teo, President of the General Insurance Association of Singapore, and Dr Su Guaning, President of NTU. ICRM’s vision is to be Asia’s leading research institute in catastrophe risk.

This vision is part of NTU’s drive to be a world’s leading university addressing key global challenges affecting humanity and society. I invite you to share in our vision for ICRM and look forward to collaborations with you as we embark on our efforts in this new and exciting venture.
