Clearwater Investment Accounting for Insurers

Accounting for your investment portfolio is demanding. Clearwater’s insurance accounting solution provides insurers of all types and sizes with daily, audit-quality accounting reports, including reports to support the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows, and Schedule D. These reports include complete audit trail information with flexible assumptions and are supplemented by transaction, income and security detail, general ledger entries, impairment analysis, trading activity, cash flow forecast, tax lots, and more.

With Clearwater’s automated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application, you’ll no longer be required to manually enter trades and transactions, aggregate, or reconcile data. Clearwater takes care of the heavy lifting for you by providing you with precise and accurate multi-basis accounting (GAAP, STAT, IFRS, Tax, etc.) information available at your fingertips. Period-end closes are streamlined and calculations, entries, reconciliation reports, write-downs, and disclosures are taken care of.

Unlike other systems, the Clearwater insurance investment accounting solution continuously validates financial values throughout the day and delivers daily independent accounting, performance, risk, and compliance reports off a single integrated database. With our detailed SOC 1 Type 2 bi-annual audit report, it is no wonder why Clearwater is used and trusted by over 300 insurance companies on a daily basis.
