Join us on 12 January for a webinar on the opportunities and challenges in Asia for insurance chief investment officers (CIOs).

With a lack of domestic long dated assets to match their long-term liabilities and some restrictions on overseas investments, Asian insurers’ biggest risk exposure comes from their investments.

Regulation is also like a sword of Damocles for insurance investors, with many jurisdictions in Asia moving to risk-based regimes, which is posing questions on the impact these might have on insurers’ investment strategies.

The webinar on 12 January at 4pm Hong Kong time, which is 8am GMT, will explore how insurers can manage these trends and share best practice. 

It will also provide answers on whether new or updated regulations, as well as new accounting standards, such as IFRS 17 and IFRS 9 will make life easier or harder for CIOs in the region.

Experts sharing their insights during the webinar will include:

  • Mark Konyn, group chief investment officer at AIA
  • Sally Yim, managing director at Moody's Investors Service
  • Max Davies, insurance strategist at Wellington Management
