Singapore: 2021 participating fund health check
This e-Alert reviews the position of participating funds in Singapore at the end of 2020, based on public information published in 2021.
We have prepared a round-up of the top 10 articles on the Milliman Ireland website in 2020. The year 2020 was a year like no other with COVID-19 dominating the headlines. It’s no surprise then that COVID-19 also ranked highly in our list of most read articles for the year. However, it was our in-depth look at reinsurance as a capital management tool for life insurers that topped the list this year, with a wide range of articles making up the rest of the top 10, covering EIOPA’s Solvency II 2020 review, SFCR analysis, healthcare systems and more.
Here is the list of our top 10 most read articles for 2020.
