This report, in its fourth iteration, provides analysis of the insurance segment of Europe’s institutional investment landscape, from asset managers to gatekeepers, and broad coverage of the end-client. It explores the opportunities and challenges created by Solvency II, and the regional nuances that are necessary to understand to win insurance business. It provides an overview of “Solvency II-friendly” product development and capital optimization solutions for insurers, and an updated analysis of the implications of Solvency II for insurers and asset managers following its implementation. The report also offers comprehensive insight into the dynamics between insurers and asset managers, and covers the general account assets of insurers in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and the Nordics.
The report’s analysis centers on proprietary research, including over 35 interviews with a range of practitioners, including insurers, captive and independent asset managers (traditional and alternative), regulators, ratings agencies, and industry associations. It features insight from two proprietary surveys, with asset managers representing more than €1.9 trillion (US$2.0 trillion) of European insurance general account assets, and insurers representing more than €952 billion (US$1,004 billion) of European insurance general account assets.
