Insurance Advisory Service June 2012

Since 2008, life insurers have been confronted by a challenging climate of low interest rates coupled with regulatory changes and falling equity markets. This combination has negatively affected their financial results and stock prices, prompting them to adopt more risk-averse positions and to shift strategic priorities. The life insurers’ attempts to manage their product offerings while controlling their balance sheets have had a wide-ranging effect on the segregated fund arena. The current issue of the Insurance Advisory Service features an in-depth analysis of how life insurers have realigned their strategies, how these new strategies have affected the segregated funds business and how recent developments may change the shape of the industry in the coming years.
