Insurance & Reinsurance 

Primary insurers and reinsurers are required to adapt their business activities and their organisation to current developments. This not only applies to established insurers but also to new market participants such as insurtechs. The challenges facing the insurance industry are numerous and their impact on companies and decision-makers can be very different:

  • Regulatory requirements, e.g.
    • Solvency II and
    • IDD
  • Socio-political influences, e.g.
    • EU Taxonomy Regulation and
    • ESG,
    • sanctions and embargos
  • Technical developments and possibilities, e.g.
    • digitalisation,
    • artificial intelligence,
    • clouds
    • new distribution channels
    • cyber risks
  • Low interest rates and demographic change, e.g.
    • run-off of life insurance policies,
    • funding occupational pension schemes and pension funds
