Extension Implementation Risk Reporting

The Disbanded Risk Reporting Working Party has completed its research investigating risk reporting practices in the Global Insurance Industry

It presented its paper at two of the IFoA’s sessional meetings (23 September, London and 18 November, Edinburgh).  Paul Klumpes was keen to build upon this work and so this new working party was established to recommend the implementation of the findings of this first report.

Key Objectives:

  • Extend and update the analysis regarding best practice Risk reporting in the insurance sector in the UK, EU, US and Asia Pacific regions, by extending the analysis to include some smaller (specialist) insurance firms (and potentially banks)
  • Extend the analysis to focus on current practices related to operational risk, risk capital management and regulatory risks
  • Update the analysis to incorporate risk classification framework appropriate to sustainability (integrated) reporting environments
  • Identify proposed implementation guidelines for best practice reporting by standardised reporting entities to stakeholders and by specific reporting to inside stakeholders.

Subsequently the IFoA established the FRC WP chaired by Colin Ledlie to examine implications for the profession arising from the FRC consultations regarding the recommendations of the Lord Sharman report on enhancing the risk disclosures of UK corporates, and in January 2014 a joint venture between this Working Party and Colin Ledlie’s Working Party was established to implement recommendations arising from feedback garnered from the original working party research.

This collaboration will continue in 2015/2016 to extend the work already completed for 2013 and provide a further update to 2014 financial accounts, to see disclosure practice trends over time from before to after final announcement of the corporate code requirements.


Chair: Paul Klumpes

    Retail banking is going through a period of substantial change as it moves into the digital age. Banks have large amounts of data about their customers and about their risks. Open data application programming interface (APIs) and data science are enabling banks to use their data to offer innovative and sometimes personalised services. Data science is also adding value in risk areas such as fraud detection and cyber security. At the same time, the move to online banking is making it easier for firms including fintechs to enter banking without having to establish branch networks.

    Covid-19 has required an urgent and cross-practice initiative to facilitate the extensive impact this pandemic has across all industries. IFoA members have been keen to contribute in a different way, so we developed the IFoA Covid-19 Action Taskforce [ICAT] to coordinate our effort, with a more efficient governance.

    We have over 500 volunteers and countless topics which we have amalgamated into 93 workstreams.
