Risk management is central to the running of a successful insurance operation. This means that insurers must be able to measure and monitor their risks using risk-management tools that will effectively help them manage and exploit these risks. This paper considers risk-reporting techniques in the life-insurance industry in South Africa, reporting on the results of a survey of current practice. Liability risk, asset risk, asset-liability risk, and operational risk are each viewed separately. The current state of reporting is considered and a view is taken as to the future outlook, identifying areas for potential improvements in risk reporting. Additionally, comparisons are made with current practices outside South Africa, particularly in North America.
