Financial Markets set a very challenging scene for the insurance and pension providers. Long lasting low interest rate environment combined with increased volatility on both the bond and equity market are complex factors for companies taking up long-term liabilities. Organisations sometimes have to decrease ambitions or profit sharing.
Modern asset management should help to achieve the set targets. Therefore, derivatives are used more intensively to enhance the features of the assets to invest in. Volatility control is key for organisations supporting long-term investments to cover future liabilities like retirement liabilities.
