NEWS | For Immediate Release

LONDON, JULY 18, 2017 – Moody's Analytics announced today that its technology has been selected by Uniqa Insurance Group ("UNIQA"), one of Austria's leading insurers, who will be using a number of Moody's Analytics solutions for their valuation, components of their internal model, strategic asset allocation, and portfolio optimization. 

UNIQA will implement Moody's Analytics Economic Scenario Generator ("ESG"). The solution will be used by Group Risk Management for market consistent valuation, and will offer latest state-of-the-art modelling, faster performance and automation of the scenario generation process.

At the same time, the ESG will be used by UNIQA Capital Markets for strategic asset allocation and portfolio optimization. This will allow UNIQA to benefit from the broad coverage of Moody's Analytics economic modelling, including integrated portfolio projection which supports modelling of dynamic asset reinvestment strategies linked liabilities. 

UNIQA will also use Moody's Analytics Risk Scenario Generator, RiskIntegrity™ Proxy Generator, and RiskIntegrity™ Capital Aggregator solutions as the core components of their future Internal Model for Market Risk. 

"UNIQA's decision to use Moody's Analytics Internal Model solution was driven by the breadth of the functionality available in a business-orientated solution from a single vendor. The flexible and configurable solution will allow UNIQA to take ownership quickly and is expected to accelerate implementation timelines," said UNIQA Head of Group Actuarial & Risk Management, René Knapp. 

"We are delighted that UNIQA has selected Moody's Analytics solutions to address a wide range of their modelling needs including valuation, internal model, strategic asset allocation, and portfolio optimization. We are excited to start working with UNIQA as one of the adopters of our internal model and portfolio projection capabilities," said Brian Robinson, Senior Director at Moody's Analytics.
