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.
