Investment Policy Compliance Monitoring for Insurers

Automated Investment Policy Monitoring Made Easy With Clearwater

In a market environment where credit ratings can shift overnight and accounting rules change frequently, ensuring your investment portfolio is in compliance with your company’s investment policy is no easy task. Whether you rely on manual spreadsheets, a compliance monitoring system tied to a holdings report, or information from your various asset managers, it’s difficult to have a “complete” view of investment policy compliance.

With Clearwater’s flexible investment policy compliance solution, there are no more spreadsheets, frantic calls to your investment manager, or delayed month-end reports that reveal your investments were out of compliance. Clearwater compliance provides insurance investors with a web-based, automated investment policy monitoring solution that puts up-to-date compliance information at your fingertips.

“With Clearwater, we have the ability to pull all these tasks that we formerly did separately—investment accounting, risk analytics, performance measurement, and investment policy compliance—all under one roof. That model really makes a whole lot of sense to me and everyone else here at CopperPoint.”

– Chad Welborn, Chief Investment Officer, CopperPoint

Once your investment policies are loaded into Clearwater, including your accounting-based policies and state insurance guidelines and limits, you’ll know exactly which rules are in violation and can easily drill down to the position, tax lot, or individual security. If a policy rule is out of compliance, automatic notifications are sent showing the date each violation occurred and a list of new violations. On a daily basis, Clearwater provides you with actionable, up-to-date information regarding portfolio compliance. And because it’s integrated, automated, actionable, and accurate, Clearwater’s compliance functionality removes any doubt as to whether your portfolio is compliant with your investment policy, or meets insurance regulatory compliance guidelines.
