A.M.BestTV: The 27th East Asian Insurance Congress – Competition, Interest Rates and Regulations Are Shaping the Asian Markets

OLDWICK, N.J.--()--In this A.M.BestTV episode from the 27th East Asian Insurance Congress in Taipei, Taiwan, the hot topic on the fourth day concerns the array of challenges the Asian insurance markets are facing, despite their continuing growth.

At the A.M. Best breakout session, John Andre, group vice president at A.M. Best spoke about the reinsurance market. ”Reinsurers are finding it tough today, which is why A.M. Best has put a negative outlook on the reinsurance segment,” said Andre. “Reinsurers today are facing a number of challenges from investment margins, investment returns, competition from outside the market and new sources of competition from capital markets. With all these different issues going on, it is going to be difficult for the reinsurance segment for the next couple of years.”

Also appearing in this episode are:

  • Roger Sellek, chief executive officer at A.M. Best EMEA and Asia Pacific; and
  • Moungmo Lee, general manager, analytics at A.M. Best Asia-Pacific Limited.
