Asia Conference Webinar: Liability Aware Investment Solutions

Thursday 24 September 2020 16:00 - 17:00

16.00-17.00 (GMT+8) | 09.00-10.00 (BST)

This presentation explores some liability-aware investment solutions to address local regulatory changes faced by insurance companies in Asia.

A number of countries in Asia will strengthen or implement their own risk-based capital frameworks in coming years (e.g. Singapore in 2020, HK in 2022, ICS by 2025). Consequently, insurers are expected to review their investment strategies on the general account with increased ALM considerations. Despite similarities between 2rframeworks, there should not be a single optimal approach for all jurisdictions. Insurance investment solutions will need to adapt to each country specificities and capture local market environment and regulatory rules (e.g. Matching Adjustment).
