Which valuation metrics do you find most useful in valuing insurance stocks?
(Participants were allowed three responses)
Has ‘European Embedded Value’ reporting improved the transparency
and compatibility of life insurers’ reporting?
One question that we maybe should have (but failed to) include in our survey would have concentrated on investors’ ‘satisfaction’ with the quality of current reporting. If we had asked such a question, we suspect that most investors would have been critical of reporting.
It is against this background that the answers to the questions here should be judged. The majority of respondents believe that EEV has ‘somewhat’ improved reporting – but we do not think that this should be interpreted as investors yet being satisfied with the quality of reporting.
