Sector Report: Insurance

The insurance industry is facing a variety of near- and long-term challenges with tightening capital regulations, a low interest rate environment, and opportunities and risks from technology. Sustainalytics' new sector research report, "Insurance - Shedding Light on New Industry Challenges," examines the trends impacting the industry and the ESG investment risks and opportunities of 149 public and private insurance companies.

Based on our research, responsible finance, financial product governance and business ethics are the most material ESG issues for the sector. We also found large discrepancies in insurers' strategies to manage climate-driven risks and niche opportunities, including catastrophe bonds. 

On July 23, 2015, Sustainalytics hosted a webinar to present the findings from its Insurance Sector report. To access the webinar recording and the presentation slides click here
