Global insurance insights – Q1 2023
As we prepare for a turbulent 2023 we reflect on two topics which are always firmly on insurers’ radar: regulatory change, and sustainability.
In the UK a review of Solvency II has led to proposed changes which we expect will help to unlock investments in productive finance, and lead to positive policyholder outcomes. We consider the changes here in the context of a wider audience, as we note commonality with several other insurance regulatory regimes.
Regarding sustainability, many insurers have made net zero commitments with the aim of decarbonising their asset (and liability) portfolios fully by 2050 or earlier. The availability and variety of assets that can help achieve these aims is ever increasing, and we look here at a less familiar topic suited to this agenda, namely that of “Natural Capital”.
