S&P to update insurance capital model

Standard & Poor's (S&P) Ratings Services has released a proposed comprehensive update of the model it uses to analyse portfolios of capital held by insurance companies, that was first introduced in the 1990s.

According to S&P, capital adequacy has historically been one component in a nine-part framework that it uses to determine insurance company ratings. Under the proposed changes to the capital model, a formula would be applied to each insurance company to garner a target capital figure.
