Investment issues are increasingly important to insurer profitability and risk management. We provide a market-leading range of insurance-specific advice on investment issues and can also provide investment governance support through our outsourced investment function offering.

Solvency II

Investment issues are increasingly important to insurer profitability and risk management. Yields are low and returns on different asset classes are volatile. Solvency II introduced the Prudent Person Principle and requires firms to identify, measure, monitor, manage, control and report their investment risks. This requires all firms to have access to investment expertise to challenge asset managers and to have appropriate governance and reporting frameworks in place.

We have insurance-specific investment experts as well as being able to leverage the wider experience of our Investment Consulting Team.

In addition our SCR calculation tool, SIIMPLIFY, can be used by Chief Investment Officers and Asset Managers to quickly assess the SCR of a particular fund or change in strategy.
