Insurance companies can add real value with their finance function

Insurance companies are subject to a large number of regulatory reporting requirements. The reporting obligations (Solvency II, IFRS, HGB, etc.) place an enormous responsibility on the business entity, and especially on CFOs and CROs of insurance companies.

In addition to complying with and reflecting the statutory regulatory requirements placed on the finance and risk area, they must also contribute to the economic success of the company by increasing efficiency and effectiveness.

The answering of regulatory and technical questions as well as the implementation of resulting requirements is therefore increasingly dominated by questions regarding the target operating model, the automation of processes and the harmonisation of data and reporting channels.

In order to meet these requirements, those responsible should ask themselves the following questions:

Connect with us

Financial ambition

How does the staff planning look for the reflection of the new/additional challenges (SII, IFRS 9/17)? Is an increase planned and approved? Is there an active knowledge transfer within the business entity to ensure an adequate level of know-how in the relevant finance and risk positions?

Governance model and structure

Are the existing structures adequate for the current and future challenges? Is the CFO/CRO organisational structure aligned with the overall strategy of the insurance company?

Target operating model

What is my target operating model? Is my organisation engaged in analysing and managing the business or developing ongoing and long-term opportunities? Or is it struggling for day-to-day operational survival?


What control information will I need in the future? Do economic and regulatory steering impulses fit together? How can I identify and implement leading indicators?

Are reporting deadlines met? Are there frequent deviations from planned figures? Is there ongoing monitoring and control with appropriate KPIs? Are there new internal and external time constraints?


What does the future financial landscape look like? What adjustments to the current system landscape are necessary to reflect the required functionalities from internal and external requirements (Solvency II, IFRS 9/17)? Should the existing landscape be expanded or are new solutions required?
