Leaders and Laggards in Advanced Asia-Domiciled Insurance Sector

236 Views09 May 2024 10:34
SUMMARY
  • Insurers domiciled in Advanced Asian Economies have reaped the benefits of the higher-for-longer interest rate environment that has buoyed profitability for the sub-sector, even though operational headwinds and policy uncertainty remain key challenges for the sector in the latter half of the year.
  • Suffice to say the trend in Insurers’ credit risk profiles, measured using Criat’s Credit Cycle Indices (CCCIs), has been non-homogenous across the continent with firms domiciled in economies such as South Korea and Hong Kong facing a substantially higher risk than those domiciled in Singapore, Japan, and Taiwan.
  • Strong net investment returns over the past year have helped boost profitability for most of the sub-sector that has increased its exposure to government securities.
