ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value

Origination date: 15 October 2013

Forward-looking insurers are moving beyond a strictly “check the box”/compliance-driven attitude regarding Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) requirements. For many, ORSA strategies drive business opportunities, such as boosting existing enterprise risk management (ERM) practices.
Join our panel of ORSA and ERM professionals, moderated by Bill Spinard, Insurance Risk Advisory Services Practice Leader, Ernst & Young LLP, for an interactive discussion on approaches to ORSA compliance that are also effective business strategies.
The panel will take questions from the webcast audience, and real-time polling during the event will give you an opportunity to learn how your organization compares with others.
Topics include:
· Defining ORSA and what it means for your firm
· Assessing your firm’s readiness and current ERM capabilities
· Addressing common implementation gaps and challenges
· Aligning ORSA compliance to long-term business value

You are welcome to join the on-demand version of this interactive discussion and learn about how ORSA compliance can lead to effective business strategies, by going to: http://bit.ly/15ptEPD.

This webcast is part of an ongoing series. Register for any webcast and you will be asked if you want to receive invitations to future webcasts.

  • 15. Today’s agenda ► Background and regulatory update ► ORSA overview ► Industry ► perspectives Achieving long-term business value Join today’s Twitter discussion: Page 15 #EY_ORSA The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 16. Industry perspectives ORSA readiness No activity – attending webcast ► ORSA/ERM gaps identified, roadmaps developed/under development Active projects to close identified capability gaps Participated in second pilot – capabilities to produce full report Companies are at different levels of readiness ► ► ► ORSA working group formed – limited activity In general – healthcare industry capabilities are behind life and property/casualty Companies with favorable ERM ratings from S&P likely have many capabilities in place Several companies across life/health and property/casualty industries participated in one or both pilots ► ► First pilot allowed incomplete submissions – many submitted partial ORSA reports Second pilot required more comprehensive ORSA report and participants indicated comfort with their capabilities Some companies use ORSA as the driver for ERM enhancements that drive business value Page 16 The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 17. Industry perspectives ► Key ORSA implementation questions for the insurance industry ► ► ► ► ► Page 17 For an insurance group with multiple insurance legal entities or with different types of business (e.g., both Life and P/C), should they prepare a single or multiple ORSA reports? What will the final report look like, what information should be included and what is an appropriate report length? How will all the information for the report, which will likely come from multiple business units, be pulled together effectively and efficiently? If capital is viewed through multiple lenses/bases (e.g., RBC, economic capital, rating agencies capital), should all of these be included in the report? What other stakeholders (e.g., rating agencies, external auditors) will want to receive a copy of the report? The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 18. Fact check What measurement approach do you plan to use for section 3 of the ORSA (the prospective solvency assessment)? A. Risk based capital B. Rating agency capital C. Existing economic capital approach D. New economic capital approach E. Does not apply (EY, faculty, alumni, other) Page 18 The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 19. Industry perspectives ► Section 1 - much of the industry has put an ERM framework on paper for the organization, but evidence of use and effectiveness remains inconsistent Industry perspective ► Most companies feel comfortable that current capabilities meet most of the requirements of Section 1 of the ORSA Guidance Manual ► Certain companies that have very immature ERM programs need to formalize their framework in place to cover all components ► Common capability gaps ► Risk appetite ► Strong risk culture ► Evidence of risk management’s role in key decisions Governance structures in the insurance industry are very different than other financial services companies ► Independent CRO reporting to CEO/Board ► Separate risk committee of the Board Page 19 Implementation challenges The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value ► Companies continue the struggle to directly link risk appetite and limits/tolerances across key risk types ► Definition of the risk appetite to incorporate quantitative measures requires the adoption of a consistent quantitative measure of risk ► Consistent implementation of ERM framework across the group – specifically different countries and industries (e.g. P&C vs. Life)
  • 20. Industry perspectives ► Section 2 - calls for the quantitative and qualitative assessment of risk exposures in normal and stressed conditions Industry perspective ► Current risk assessment is dependent on risk taxonomy ► ► ► In general, life companies are less focused on operational risk Common capability gaps ► Comprehensive risk inventory with quantitative and qualitative assessments ► Implementation challenges Consistent metric across risk types In general, P&C and Health companies are less focused on investment/market risk Companies that have moved towards an economic capital framework have a more mature quantitative approach in place ► Determining how to perform the assessment under “stressed” conditions when the metric may already be under a “stress” (e.g., economic capital may be defined as a 1 in 200 year stress) ► Building a more robust approach for both qualitative and quantitative assessment of broader range of operational risks The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value Difficult due to lack of exposure data ► Page 20 ► Even more quantitative approaches require significant approximations
  • 21. Industry perspectives ► Section 3 - includes two complex components group risk capital calculation prospective solvency assessment ► ► Industry perspective Common capability gaps ► Generally viewed as most complex component of ORSA Guidance Manual ► Complex groups typically don’t have a group risk capital calculation ► Was not typically part of a good ERM framework ► Capabilities to project future income statement and balance sheet under stressed conditions incorporating new business Implementation challenges ► Flexibility provided by the Guidance Manual leaves many question unanswered Apprehension exists with regards to the ultimate use of this section by regulators ► Page 21 Capabilities to project future capital requirements – in particular under internally developed measurement framework Used to require additional capital? ► ► Accounting differences across geographies and product lines increase difficulty in relying on existing frameworks ► Comprehensive views of future balance sheets under required accounting regime (Stat, GAAP, Economic) ► Approaches for calculating future required capital components for calculation intensive balances (e.g., future projections of stressed market value of liabilities) ► Incorporation of multiple capital frameworks to model future distributions of excess capital ► ► ► Reliable aggregation of financial statements across legal entities Used to compare companies?

  • 22. Today’s agenda ► Background and regulatory update ► ORSA overview ► Industry perspectives ► Achieving long-term business value Join today’s Twitter discussion: Page 22 #EY_ORSA The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 23. Achieving long-term business value ► Link to ERM ► ► ► ► Page 23 The flexibility around the ORSA report and Guidance Manual minimize the “compliance” nature of the requirement ORSA compliance shouldn’t be a standalone item – but rather a way to push ERM capabilities forward The ORSA Guidance Manual is looking to formalize and document a robust ERM framework; the value to an organization comes from the value of ERM The ORSA requirement should push an organization to use and show evidence of their ERM program working when undertaking complex decisions The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
  • 24. Achieving long-term business value ► Value from a strong ERM program ► ► ► ► ► ► Page 24 Improves focus on risk and further establishes the “tone at the top” Provides an independent challenge and review of key information, assumptions and business practices, allowing the ability to escalate issues Helps to improve decision making through increased rigor and standard / structured processes, as well as the ability to understand financial impact based on stress events Enhances collaboration with business units and leadership to identify emerging risks, understand current plans to address and focus on the future Improved executive level discussions about risk and strategic decision making Enhances the external stakeholder (rating agencies, policyholders, peer organizations) perspective of the organization resulting in improved opportunities for growth The ORSA opportunity: compliance and business value
