LV: Eiopa sieht Prämienvolumen unter Druck

17.12.2014 – Bernardino, EiopaFür die Lebensversicherer sieht die Eiopa in ihrer aktuellen Analyse im kommenden Jahr kein Wachstumspotential. Die Gesamtbranche sieht die europäische Aufsicht um Präsident Gabriel Bernardino profitabel mit positiven Aussichten – allerdings sollen die Ergebnisse 2015 unter Druck geraten.

The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) published its report on financial stability in relation to the (re)insurance and occupational pension fund sectors in the European Economic Area.

Key risks to financial stability are

  • Weak macroeconomic climate, prolonged low interest rates and sovereign credit risk remain the key risk factors;
  • Certain asset prices may not correctly reflect underlying risks and in case of reversal market perception, the asset value will substantially decrease;
  • Insurers are reducing profit shares and setting up additional technical provisions to adapt their business models to the low yield environment;

The analysis wants to show that certain asset prices might not correctly reflect underlying risks. A reversal of markets’ perceptions of those risks could substantially decrease the value of assets held by insurers and pension funds.

According to Eiopas qualitative assessment, in 2015 positive premium growth is anticipated for non-life insurers only. (vwh/ku)
