UK Asbestos Working Party Data Request
The UK Asbestos Working Party periodically carries out market surveys of insurance company UK asbestos-related claims in order that they can estimate the future cost of UK asbestos-related claims to the insurance industry.
We are currently calling for participants to complete the survey to year end 2018.The working party would like to cover as much of the UK Insurance Market as possible. The greater the coverage of this survey, the more relevant the working party’s findings are likely to be to the insurance industry as a whole. If your organisation has exposure to UK asbestos-related claims and you would like to participate in the survey (on an anonymous basis) please download the survey template and submit the completed survey to Emma Thomas, GI Communities Executive, email@example.com by Friday 17 May 2019.

Our motivation for discussing this important subject comes from some exciting recent research which has analysed the impact of behavioural factors on the decision to purchase an annuity. This work has shown that behavioural factors can explain the well-known low demand for immediate annuities but this research also identifies an important opportunity in relation to deferred annuities (DA). The research suggests that these factors lead to positive incentives to purchase a DA and that, for longer deferred periods, a DA could be an attractive product for both consumers and insurers.

For life insurers in the UK, the risk margin is one of the most controversial aspects of the Solvency II regime. Following its implementation, the risk margin came under considerable criticism for being too large and too sensitive to interest rate movements. These criticisms are particularly valid for annuity business – such business is of great significance to the national system for retirement provision. This criticism has led to political interest, and the risk margin was a major element of the Treasury Committee inquiry into Solvency II.
