BOISE, ID – April 9, 2014 — Clearwater Analytics today announced the launch of the Insurance Industry Peer Benchmark Survey for investment accounting and treasury professionals. The survey, open from today through the end of April, will help insurers in North America benchmark themselves against their peers by providing a comprehensive review of investment structures, strategies, and processes. Chief financial officers, chief investment officers, treasurers, accounting managers, statutory accountants, and other finance professionals who take this survey will gain valuable insight into the lifecycle of managing, accounting for, reporting on, and analyzing investment portfolios in the insurance industry.

The survey focuses specifically on investment operations, investment accounting, and regulatory reporting. Survey respondents will receive a detailed analysis of the results, allowing them to see how they compare to peer organizations. The results will provide a view into how insurers are managing and accounting for their investments, analyzing portfolio performance, and handling their reporting processes, and will cover their top concerns and challenges. It will offer insight into the similarities and differences among a variety of company types, sizes, and geographies. Key findings will be presented by Brian King from Clearwater Analytics at the Chief Investment Officer Roundtable Executive Briefing at the Insurance Accounting & Systems Association (IASA) Annual Conference on June 8, 2014.
