Risk Analysis of the Insurance and Pension Funds Sector

The ASF has released the fifth edition of the Risk Analysis on the Insurance and Pension Funds Sector (ARSSFP) publication, which identifies the main risks and challenges facing the industry from a macroprudential perspective, bearing in mind the current macroeconomic and geopolitical contexts.

In the current transition to Solvency II, a possible abrupt reversal in yields, combined with the current prolonged scenario of low interest rates, is at the moment the greatest risk to the financial stability of the sector.
