In a time of economic recession, low interest rates and the advent of Solvency II, insurance company balance sheets are coming under serious strain. Expenses are rising and investment income cannot be relied upon to bridge the gap. It has become imperative for CFOs and senior managers to look in detail at all aspects of the balance sheet and make improvements wherever practical.
At this IUA market briefing, our speakers will be talking about such stresses on an insurance company balance sheet, and practical ways in which the balance sheets can be improved. Ian Clark, of Deloitte will give an overview to the current economic situation and how it is affecting performance. Steve Goate of R&Q will be giving practical advice on simple but effective ways to improve your balance sheet, while Stefan Watson, also of R&Q, will be talking about the potential advantages of selling non-performing reinsurance assets. Clive Buesnel of Deloitte will close with some more practical examples of how to improve efficiency and save costs.
