Pre-emptive recovery planning - 2022 Industry benchmarking survey report

Mazars are delighted to publish this comprehensive insight into the approach taken by insurers in relation to their initial pre-emptive recovery plans developed in 2022.

Pre-emptive Recovery Plans are unique to each company and are generally highly sensitive and confidential.  At the same time, insurers are keen to benchmark their approach with that of their peers. To facilitate and support insurers in this area, we ran a survey during the summer of 2022 covering a broad range of aspects of the requirements.

Our report provides insight into

  • Key areas of challenge and areas for future improvement
  • Recovery Plan report style
  • Ownership & Governance of Recovery Plans
  • Recovery Indicators & Options
  • Integration with ORSA & the Risk Management framework
  • Scenario Analysis
  • Communication Plans.
