Apply effective ALM strategies to build an optimal portfolio which attains yield targets and capital efficiency under the Solvency II rules and low rate environment

19-21 September 2018
Central London, United Kingdom

Conference Workshop

The impacts of Solvency II on long term investments and how firms can revitalise long term products under SII

The SCR, for many, doesn’t work well with profitable long-term investment strategies and many firms are being forced therefore to remove pension products. This workshop leader will focus on research that they have conducted over the past year into this issue and will provide insight into how firms can avoid such constraints.

Workshop Moderator: Yannis Pitaras, Owner

Company: WM Risk Management


Why You Should Attend

8th Edition Insurance ALM and Asset Allocation under Solvency II

This marcus evans conference will look at today’s best practice when it comes to devising asset management strategies to meet yield targets and obtain capital efficiency under Solvency II rules. Currently, the portfolios of large UK and Central European Insurance firms are positioned to a satisfactory level under the Solvency II rules. The kinds of developments these firms have made have been far harder to accomplish for small-medium firms who may lack both the financial and human resources to keep up. Understanding the optimal portfolio composition for one’s firm under Solvency II is a key step, especially when the low rate environment continues to make it difficult for all firms to meet their yield target. In the search for good yield alternative assets have become increasingly desirable for their ability to give higher returns. However, their dynamics are highly complex and come at the price of higher risk. With this in mind, traditional assets continue to contribute to a significant amount of most portfolios. The increasing complexity demands greater collaboration with external investment experts, which in turn leaves room for better working efficiency.
