More than before, these days the insurance sector faces multiple challenges. New regulatory requirements and adverse economic conditions have to be dealt with, while at the same time strategy and competitiveness have to remain strong. On the regulatory front the upcoming Solvency II framework, the MCEV principles and the finalization phase of IFRS 4 (Phase II) reporting put the insurance world under pressure, requiring technical improvements as well as increasing demands on reporting and transparency.
- IFRS4 (phase II) on insurance contracts
- IFRS9 on financial instruments
- Revised IAS19 on pension contracts
- Solvency II pillar 1 requiring market consistent valuations and economic risk based capital requirements
- Solvency II pillar 2 requiring enhanced internal control frameworks, sophisticated risk management and an own risk and solvency assessment (ORSA)
- Solvency II pillar 3 requiring fast and extensive reporting
