During the General Meeting, Thierry Léger, Chief Executive Officer of SCOR, presented the outlines of the new strategic plan for the period 2024 to 2026.
This new plan, which will be presented in detail at SCOR's Investor Day on 7 September 2023, will be based on two main areas:
Maximizing the Group's Economic Value and maintaining a high level of solvency in a favorable market environment; Developing the Group's business model to increase its competitiveness.
SCOR is in a strong position to benefit from the current supportive environment. Its three business units will be the Group's main drivers of growth and value creation:
L&H: SCOR will fully leverage its L&H reinsurance platform to generate attractive and stable cashflows; P&C: SCOR will take full advantage of the P&C reinsurance cycle to improve its risk profile and maximize value creation; Investments: SCOR will pursue its prudent investment policy while maintaining a high level of liquidity.
The Group will evolve its business model, which also creates value, through four levers:
Closer and more dynamic steering of capital allocation; Strengthened asset & liability management; The establishment of risk partnerships through centralized retrocession; Structuring the model around data.
During the General Meeting, SCOR also announced new sustainable underwriting commitments, which will take effect on 1 September 2023:
