Product Description

The insurance industry is facing turbulent times and risk management is at the top of the agenda. This is particularly the case in Europe, where the introduction of Solvency II will drastically redesign the supervisory rules for regulatory capital for insurance companies. Therefore it is crucial that the industry fully understands how to implement risk management best practice.

Solvency II is reaching a final phase and pressure is mounting on insurers to implement and professionalise risk management practices. Needless to say, supervisors are encouraging risk management information to be more widely spread throughout organisations in order for it to be fully integrated into the day-to-day management of the business. Many companies are at this moment upgrading their risk management systems.

In this timely new book, industry expert René Doff argues that Solvency II, which aims to improve standards of risk assessment, should be regarded as an opportunity. Solvency II will provide incentives for insurance companies to improve their risk management systems and will allow you to benefit from the risk management efforts in the context of supervision.

Risk management and value creation are inherently tied together. This book also shows how to integrate risk and value management into the management control framework of insurance companies. It highlights the evolution of embedded value into market consistent techniques and fair value. These issues are also relevant in the context of accounting regulation (IFRS).

This new user-friendly book will help you to quickly get to grips with risk management terms and techniques and how they relate specifically to the insurance industry. It also demonstrates how Solvency II is already shaping the regulatory agenda and its likely impact on the insurance industry.

Risk Management for Insurers is an accessible reference for the whole insurance industry, identifying and discussing how to measure a
