The Hong Kong insurance industry is set for a paradigm shift. A higher interest rate environment is causing insurance companies to reconsider product design and asset allocation. Meanwhile, changes in accounting regulations, namely IFRS 17, and a brighter spotlight on ESG, especially on climate change and net zero targets, are also key considerations for the year ahead. Against this backdrop, we will discuss.
• How has the macroenvironment impacted the insurance industry and what effect does it have on investment portfolios?
• To what extent will IFRS 17 changes influence investment decisions?
• What are the key considerations when assessing various types of alternative investments?
• How are insurers making an impact through sustainable investments?
• What is the latest on the risk-based capital regime for Hong Kong-based insurers?
