2nd Edition Asset Allocation, ALM and Investment Strategies for Insurers

Insurance companies have had a challenging few years since the financial crisis. Firstly the introduction of regulation such as Europe's Solvency II rules, and local APAC equivalents, has seen restrictions placed on the risky investments insurers used to rely on achieve high levels of return. Secondly, the low interest rate environment has seen firms struggle to earn any real income from safer' investments such as government bonds. Now however, interest rates are beginning to rise and so firms are starting to think about how they will use this capital breathing space  for example to strengthen their risk management or to try and achieve a competitive advantage. At the same time, the industry is facing the implications of new regulatory developments and ongoing macro economic turbulence.

Our conference will show delegates how the insurance industry can capitalize on upcoming interest rate rises to achieve their business objectives whilst at the same time navigating the tricky environment of regulatory and economic change. Attending this premier GFMI conference will help delegates understand the intricacies of current macroeconomic challenges, optimizing investment strategies, maximizing returns through alternative investments to meet the challenges of the low-yield economic environment and addressing regulatory challenges and tighter requirements for capital and asset liability management. Practical examples of assessing and evaluating the new capital requirements are discussed. Attendees will see what the most efficient capital structure is. Detailed case studies will present how the new regulation of RBC 2, IFRS9 and IFRS 17 impact on the investment strategies and ALM, so that delegates leave the event with a clear road map for the next steps in progression.
