Karel's Club - Executive Insurance Forum
Reinsurance and Alternative Forms of Risk Transfer
The present low interest rate environment in a number of countries has a profound influence on life assurance. Although it is not clear yet whether we will see a repetition of a Japanese scenario with a prolonged continuation of low interest rates, there is no doubt that the present situation already has an impact on the existing book of life policies. Furthermore, the question arises whether it will be possible to continue providing long term guarantees in the future. The planned introduction of a risk based solvency regime (such as Solvency II) has a direct impact on this question.
The third meeting of the Karel’s Club will look at developments in reinsurance in general and at the role of the reinsurance industry in the development of alternative forms of risk transfer, benefiting from the input of a number of key experts in the field.
