Actuarial Services 

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.
