Standard Life Investments : Asia Pacific Insurance SurveyJuly 4 2017
The global insurance industry is being reshaped by twin forces: historically low interest rates and the modernisation of regulatory regimes. Two years on from our research on the European insurance industry in the lead up to the arrival of Solvency II, we turn our lens to Asia Pacific. Standard Life Investments commissioned this in-depth research to identify the latest trends impacting Asia Pacific insurance companies and the implications for their investment strategies. We identify the pressures facing traditional business models and analyse the investment implications.
The research targeted Chief Investment Officers, Chief Risk Officers and Heads of Investment in six markets across Asia Pacific. These markets all have distinct characteristics and are at very different stages of maturity. The combined assets managed by the respondents are over $4 trillion, which represents an estimated 60% of the total Asia Pacific insurance market.
