Sustainable shareholder value by managing prospective economic capital generation
  • Tessa Kuijl - Senior Specialist, Ortec Finance

Insight in the drivers of sustainable Economic Capital Generation is adamant for a successful business. Furthermore it receives more scrutiny from different stakeholders. It is already common practice to attribute the annual realised capital in hindsight (ex-post) to various business and market developments. However, to manage your future economic capital generation it is also indispensable to incorporate this perspective in ALM and economic capital projections. 

What are the main drivers of long term economic capital generation? What are the main risks and factors that diminish your ability to generate (free) economic capital going forward? During this presentation we will address the benefits of forward looking economic capital attribution in ALM analysis that captures enterprise wide risks and external threats. All in order to support long term sustainable capital generation.

What's the value of flexibility?
  • Speaker Dominic Rau - Head of Risk Governance & Steering, Swiss Re

The ability to react to surprises is of increasing value in a time when uncertainty is high. Do we take this into account sufficiently in our risk appetite? While we can measure and manage risk, we can only adapt to uncertainty when it materializes. Can we influence the firm's risk taking preferences such that they support flexibility to react to unknowns? Do we sufficiently reflect the value of flexibility in the way we set up our risk frameworks? This session will make an attempt to trigger a discussion on how risk managers and quants can support a strategic discussion beyond often rather capital-centric risk quantification.
