As an insurer you need to manage your balance sheet effectively in order to provide certainty for policy holders, while simultaneously safeguarding the interests of other stakeholders such as regulators and shareholders. You need to identify the major risk sources and gain insight in the impact on the future development of assets, liabilities, and ultimately your solvency position. Based on the insight that an ALM or ORSA analysis provides, senior management and trustees can formulate a strategic policy that aims to achieve the strategic objectives while reflecting the interests and risk appetite of all stakeholders.

ALM and ORSA analyses provide insight which allows senior management to formulate a strategic policy that aims to achieve strategic objectives, reflecting the interests and risk appetite of all stakeholders.

Creating a strategic policy framework

The outcome of an ALM exercise is a strategic policy framework This includes an integrated (dynamic) investment, product, and company policy which takes into account the relevant regulatory requirements. You can also use an ALM analysis to support a more detailed specification of a policy instrument, such as an investment policy analysis to address various allocation and hedging strategies, new and alternative asset classes, leverage, derivatives, and more.

Continuous evaluation of your investment strategy

A specification of your strategic policy refers to the first steps of the Strategic Risk Management framework. Over time, changes in the financial position or in market circumstances will affect the feasibility of your strategic objectives and the risk budget. This requires continuous evaluation of the strategy, referred to as Strategic Risk Management. For this purpose, Ortec Finance offers a consistent risk management simulation model (GLASS), which replicates integrated long term and short term risks and returns.
