As a result of the changing regulatory landscape, Insurers will have to adopt new economies and a new operating environment, and will likely change their approach to collateral management and securities financing
Tom Casteleyn, Client Management, Benelux & France, moderates a roundtable discussion with Mark Higgins, Collateral Management and Ian Gass, Capital Markets, exploring the shifting collateral management and securities financing environment and its implications for the Insurance industry. Mark Higgins explains, “At a macro level, Insurers are struggling with the low rate environment we are all experiencing. They are looking at new ways to increase the return from their existing portfolio of assets.” There has been a modest pick-up in stock lending, growth in liquidity swap transactions and greater use of the repo trade by Insurers. The panellists examine what these changes will mean to insurers operationally, highlighting the key issues faced, and discuss how BNY Mellon is positioned to provide support.
