Asset Management in a Challenging Market Environment

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.

Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH.


Actuaries who are involved or interested in enterprise risk management, Own Risk Self Assessments are enabled to better understand the impact of a challenging market environment on insurance companies and penstion funds.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer with Microsoft Excel installed.

Purpose and Nature

In this course the market effects on the business model and the solvency II calculations will be discussed. Actuaries will enhance their knowledge about changing possibilities to change strategies to protect company and customer interests.

The course will be conducted by the use of case which will be solved in groups of participants. Topics are discussed interactively.


The language of the seminar will be English.
