More and more institutional investors around the world are turning to the reinsurance markets for higher returns for their portfolios. The result could be record issuance in 2013 for catastrophe bonds (CAT bonds)–high-yield debt issued by insurers in which principal, rather than being repaid at maturity, may instead offset insured losses when defined catastrophic events occur. At the same time, insurers are looking to increase their own protection in the face of increasingly severe natural-disaster claims from windstorms, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. The severity or frequency of such events may be increasing, and disasters that hit heavily populated areas can be prone to unexpectedly high insured losses. Even with the best predictive models, however, any given year can present reinsurers with surprises

Some analysts have turned up the volume on the risks facing Asia’s emerging economies. At the same time, global financial markets are exhibiting more turbulence, with significant sell-offs in emerging markets. Capital is exiting Asia, bourses and currencies are coming under pressure, funding costs are rising, and some company balance sheets are coming under stress. This has been particularly true in South and Southeast Asia, where external deficits are the norm. This market turbulence comes on the heels of recent cuts in Asian GDP growth estimates, most notably for China. Are we on the verge of a repeat of the Asian financial crisis as the region pays for its excessive borrowing post-Lehman? The road may be rocky in the near term, particularly for the largest deficit countries–India and Indonesia–but we don’t think this is the Asian crisis all over again.
Since 2009, financial institutions have been rapidly advancing their use of enterprise-wide stress testing to meet increasing regulatory demands and evaluate their capital adequacy. Enterprise-wide stress testing requires a projection of losses conditional on a specific macroeconomic scenario, and has required most banks to develop new methodologies, models, and infrastructure. This has been the main focus of risk management at financial institutions in the years since the financial crisis.
In 2013, the IACPM and Oliver Wyman jointly conducted a survey with leading financial institutions around the world focused on the existing and planned uses of enterprise-wide stress testing. 55 IACPM members participated in the survey, including the world’s largest banks and insurance companies across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
