Admiral Group selects Moody’s Analytics ESG for internal model market risk calculation
NEWS | For Immediate Release
London, October 13, 2017 – Moody’s Analytics announced today that its technology has been selected by Admiral Group plc (“Admiral”), one of the UK’s leading insurers. Admiral will be using the Moody’s Analytics Economic Scenario Generator (“ESG”) for market risk calculation as part of their Solvency II Internal Model, and will also use the ESG for investment modelling and stress and scenario testing, benefitting from the flexibility of the ESG solution.
The Moody’s Analytics ESG offers a comprehensive solution – combining models, software, economic assumptions, and model calibrations – that helps insurers calculate capital requirements, value liabilities, and assess investment strategies. The ESG models a wide range of assets and economic variables including equities, corporate bonds, real estate, interest rates, and various macro-economic variables. Implementing the ESG also allows insurers to adapt their models. For instance, insurers using the ESG can add new assets or exposures to reflect a change in investment strategy or to implement regulatory stress tests.
“Admiral’s decision to use the Moody’s Analytics ESG as part of our internal model solution was driven by the breadth of modelling and calibrations it offers,” said Admiral Group CFO Geraint Jones. “The ESG’s flexibility and configurability will allow us to efficiently introduce market risk into our internal modelling capability and provide further insight on investment strategy and risk.”
“We are delighted that Admiral has selected the Moody’s Analytics ESG to address the market risk modelling needs for their internal model,” said Colin Holmes, Managing Director of Insurance Solution at Moody’s Analytics. “We are excited to start working with Admiral and to add them to the growing group of P&C insurers who are adopting the ESG for both their Solvency II internal models and their investment modelling.”
