The New Investment Environment: Challenges & Opportunities

The continuing low interest rate environment has taken its toll on investment results for the life insurance industry. Gross book yield decreased once again for the life-annuity industry. Insurers have been searching for levers to improve their returns, and yet, the interest rate environment has relentlessly pulled yields down. Some insurers have managed to slow the speed of decline, but their portfolio yields still decrease. Conning will discuss the strategic issues facing the life insurance industry with an examination of the industry's asset portfolio based on statutory filings. In focusing on the industry's assets, Conning looked at each major asset class and at trends and results for 430 insurers, grouped by business focus (life, annuities, accident and health, mixed, and reinsurance).
