Risk management

Our business model is based on risk management. This applies for both long-term pension savings and management of the daily liquidity flow. The key is that the risk is under control.

Strategy

Our strategy is that value must be created mainly by acceptance of insurance risk and to a lesser extent investment risk. This approach is reflected in our investment policy.




Less risk

We strive to hedge against business risks thus we will be able to maintain normal operations even in the case of highly unfavourable events in the outside world. Consequently,  for several years, we have reduced the risks which potentially could cause unacceptable losses. Thus, major strategic shareholdings have been sold, and the catastrophe cover for storm or terror has been increased significantly. Just as we have reduced the financial risk.




Investment

Topdanmark's shareholders' equity should be sufficient to support its current operations. We constantly focus on the factors that influence the capital structure: Finance and investment policy.

Finance

Our goal for the capital structure is to ensure that its capital base by way of shareholders' equity and hybrid capital is exactly sufficient to support its current operations and at the same time sufficient to cover regulatory requirements - but not larger. Equity in excess of this amount is distributed to shareholders by way of dividends.

Investment policy

The primary source of value creation should be from accepting insurance risk. We also believe that Topdanmark can supplement the value creation from the primary business activities by utilising the significant capital strength to accept a certain amount of financial risk thus increasing the expected return on the invested funds. Insurance risks are an inevitable consequence of the core business, which could be attractive to those investors who want to diversify the risk profile of their equity portfolios.
