The CRO Forum highly appreciates Fitch’s bold and innovative step in the evolution of the assessment of an insurer’s capital adequacy. We strongly support Fitch’s directional move in explicitly reflecting sound economic principles. The CRO Forum is also very pleased that Fitch strongly supports company internal models for measuring capital adequacy (subject to admissibility requirements) including explicit reflection of diversification and risk mitigation.
The Chief Risk Officer Forum is delighted to be presenting the study “Financial Risk Mitigation in Insurance – Time for Change”. The Chief Risk Officer Forum comprises risk officers of the major European insurance companies and financial conglomerates, and was formed to address the key relevant risk issues for its industry. It is a technical group focused on developing and promoting industry best practices in risk management.
