The key role that the Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) plays in the overall enterprise risk management of life (re)insurers has been highlighted very clearly in the past year as (re)insurers have grappled with the direct and indirect impacts of COVID-19 on their businesses.

  • More focused reporting to Boards
