Adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) to insulate insurance companies from economic shocks, Own Risk Solvency Assessment (ORSA) marks a major step in solvency regulation modernization. As of January 1, 2015, the fast-approaching date when ORSA comes into effect, insurance companies need a forward-looking risk management system that provides a more holistic assessment of various risks and their potential impact. Filing an ORSA report, however, is a daunting task for most, as it necessitates a significant investment of resources including time, money, and skill. Organizations also need to prepare themselves for the increased real-time data that an ORSA report requires.

The first integral step towards ORSA compliance is a relevant restructuring of existing ERM programs. Insurance companies also need to gather accurate and timely information to file an adequate ORSA report. Adopting a well-thought ERM program that embeds ORSA into all business aspects can help better identify, measure, monitor, manage, and report risks.
