A Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance combining Eurozone equity strategy and SCR optimization, with a formal protection.
Given the complex environment they are facing –strengthened regulatory environment, decreasing interest rate environment, increasing consideration given to economic risk, Insurers are looking for new opportunities. Innovative ones that may answer a call: how will they face their day to day prerogatives to their clients (attractive return) while complying with both their financial and regulatory issues. Indeed, they need to search for yield but at lower costs.
Regarding the appealing return and risk premium of Eurozone equities, Amundi has designed a new solution, genuine in the market, which combines cautious equity investment process - seeking risk/return optimization - and bank guarantee of 80% of capital protection on a yearly rolling basis.
This in-house solution offers:
- Dividends and equity return benefits
- Dynamic risk management strategy mitigating markets drawdown effects and SCR equity
- Amundi’s formal guarantee to the protection (Amundi is A+ rated by Fitch Ratings2)
By combining financial market and regulatory efficiency, Amundi AM’s equity solution is an effective way to optimize insurers’ equity allocation and capital charge:
- Increase the expected return of the asset allocation with the same level of Market SCR
- Reduce the Market SCR with the same expected return
Our solution does not offer any performance or full capital guarantee.
