Climate Risk Analysis
Insurers and pension plans are facing increased pressure to understand the impact of climate risk on both sides of the balance sheet. While the concept is well developed on the liability side, Chief Risk Officers and the actuarial function are now also seeking to assess the effects of both transition and physical climate risk on their asset allocations. Insurers and pension plans need to understand how different climate change scenarios might affect the financial markets and their holdings over a range of time horizons.
