Insurance Risk Nordics (formerly Life and Pensions Nordics) conference took place on 22nd May 2014 in Stockholm.

The difficult macro-economic environment remains a challenge for insurers and pension funds in the region. The low-yield environment continues to put pressure on investment returns and their ability to meet embedded guarantees, requiring companies to develop new products and look for new asset classes.

Regulatory pressures are also mounting. With the political deadlock on Omnibus II finally broken, Europe's Solvency II project is once again on the move. Insurers must ensure their compliance programmes are on track. Meanwhile plans to force derivatives trades to be centrally cleared will also affect companies' risk management strategies and increase the cost of hedging.

Insurance Risk Nordics offers expert insight and practical guidance to the key issues facing the sector.
