How do the regulatory changes impact insurer’s asset allocations?

Delivered last December, the advice from EIOPA will strongly influence the European Commission’s thinking. Elizabeth Gillam, Head of EU Government Relations and Public Policy, explains how various aspects will impact the proposed changes, including the valuation of long-term liabilities and measures relating to long-term investments.
Despite the lack of consideration of climate change or sustainable investing in EIOPA’s Solvency II advice, the urge to integrate climate change risk into insurance regulations is gathering pace.

The return of returns?

In the face of a continuing low yield environment, Charles Moussier, Head of EMEA Insurance Investment Solutions, has identified various asset classes that could offer attractive returns while compensating the cost of their regulatory capital. Among them are emerging market investment grade debt and US municipal bonds, which could also be considered as a natural fit for ESG investment.

 

Risk warnings

The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.
