Insurance solutions

The expertise of our team of insurance solutions engineers includes producing tailor-made analyses and solutions, in the context of a fully customised approach, in response to the needs of insurance companies, including asset / liability management (ALM), hedging, regulatory constraints and capital use and optimisation.

  • Assess the optimal fixed-income and equity investment universe to achieve defined objectives
  • Examine the potential added value of alternative investments
  • Plan  a potential allocation trajectory towards reaching objectives
  • Analyse potential flows and how they will be impacted by different market scenarios
  • Anticipate, from an opprtunities vs risks perspective, the impact of regulatory changes, or modifications to the insurer's own objectives (non-financial / ALM / SCR budget/ IFRS9...).

The desired result can be assessed in several ways, including accounting yield, solvency and other ratios, capital gains or losses and cashflows.

The insurance industry is highly affected by climate change. ESG has become a more global challenge for shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers and communities. Consequently, insurers must consider environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities within their strategies, as insurers and investors. Although they are primarily affected by environmental issues – physical and transition risks – they are also impacted by societal transformation and governance issues. Insurers need to adapt and innovate to remain competitive. This is a key concern, currently and for coming years.
Gaëlle Malléjac, Head of Portfolio Management for Insurance and ALM Solutions and Joséphine Chevallier, ESG Integration Responsible, ESG Strategy discuss the issue and offer us their insight.
