Overview

In spring 2016, PwC investigated the current state and future direction of stress testing. We surveyed 55 insurers operating in the US about their stress testing framework and the specific stresses that they test. We also engaged in more detailed dialogue with a number of insurers in the US and globally, as well as with some North American insurance regulators. Our principal conclusion is that stress testing, though well established, would benefit significantly from a modest amount of additional effort.
