Dear SAS members


We are pleased to welcome Mr Marco Hoogendijk, Managing director Asia at Ortec Finance, as our speaker for this talk:


Derivative Applications within an insurer’s ERM framework: The Past, Present and the Future?

Derivatives have long be applied to an Insurers book for multiple reasons. Be it Solvency II Capital optimization, ALM purposes, variable annuity hedging,  or straight forward market risk hedging. The presentation will cover the historical developments seen with large Insurers across the globe, and compare Asia’s practices to those seen in the US and Europe. Also capturing the regulatory changes and their impact on market liquidity, collateral management and internal requirements. Directly leading to what is required in the future to understand seemingly straightforward hedging programs highlighting the actual complexity when applying these so called plain vanilla strategies to a Participating Fund. The presentation will also highlight the Derivative practices here with Singapore Insurers, where the current outstanding Derivative Notional equates to SGD 50 Billion!
