Risk Panel on the Insurance Sector

The ASF publishes the March 2018 edition of the Insurance Risk Panel, which takes into account the data reported by insurance companies, with reference to December 31st, 2017, and the information on financial variables related to February 28th, 2018.
In the last quarter, the national macroeconomic environment continued to show important progress, with positive impacts on the profitability and solvency of the sector.

Credit risk declined, reflecting an improvement in the credit quality of the bond portfolio held by insurance companies under ASF prudential supervision, as a result of the upward revisions in the ratings of the main issuers to which the insurance sector is exposed.
