Insurance Risk Management
Adopt a single, integrated framework for IFRS 17 and Solvency II compliance – and beyond.
How SAS® Supports Insurance Risk Management
A single, integrated framework for both regulatory compliance and business requirements.
While IFRS/US GAAP and Solvency II differ in the details – e.g., contract identification, level of and approach to calculations, reported measures, responsibilities – they share similar requirements for data, structures, process auditability and traceability, and supporting systems. Our single, integrated framework addresses both regulatory compliance (i.e., IFRS 17/LDTI and Solvency II) and business requirements (e.g., real-time pricing, portfolio optimization). And it's built on a platform that has the flexibility to support late-breaking process changes, without disrupting what you're developing or already have in place.
Risk analysis framework
- Perform bottom-up risk analysis by product line and risk type.
- Meet the demands for more robust stress testing and scenario planning.
- A single platform enables life and P&C insurance companies to analyze a variety of risks.
- The underlying platform provides an end-to-end approach – from data sources to reporting – and can serve as the core foundation for an integrated analytical framework.
- The system is fully customizable, supporting the co-existence of multiple regulatory regimes and extension to third-party contributions.
- Flows of execution, calculations and dependencies are clearly visible.
- Documentation is generated automatically from the code and is always up-to-date.
- A scalable architecture – featuring parallel task execution, in-memory processing and grid optimization – results in extremely fast calculations.
