For companies who are submitting ORSA reports and state regulators receiving and critiquing these reports, it is often a mystery how ORSA may change in coming years. Presenters at The Evolution of ORSA: Through 2017 and Beyond Webcast will look to address this issue by answering the following questions:

  • How are companies evolving their ORSAs and ORSA reports?
  • Has ORSA affected the influence of CRO's (and ERM generally) on insurers' executives and boards?
  • How have state insurance departments' responded to companies' submitted ORSAs?
  • Will ORSAs change the way that regulators and insurers connect in future?

Presenters will also address present knowledge of ORSAs across insurers of property casualty, life and health; consequently covering companies of all sizes. The session will close after confronting significant variations in approach and content which continue to exist between companies in terms of:

  • The level of detail given through the Sections I, II and III;
  • The maturity of risk management;
  • The presentation of risk appetite and the consistency from appetite through into Sections II and III;
  • The meaning companies place on 'own solvency';
  • The application of stress testing - how broad and how deep;
  • The use of dynamic models and metrics;
  • Forward projection methods to produce a prospective view of 'own solvency'; and
  • Evidence of use of risk management to support business decisions
