(The following statement was released by the rating agency) HONG KONG/SINGAPORE, April 19 (Fitch) 本文章英文原文最初于2017年3月27日发布于:<a href="">Fitch: Chinese Insurer Risks Are Rising Under New Framework 惠誉评级表示,部分中资寿险公司因长期股权投资风险敞口上升而面临更高、更集中的风险,由于在新的风险导向资本框架下,长期股权投资的资本要求因子较低。 保险公司的盈利能力因低利率而受到压力,因此转向收益率更高且风险更高的资产。这一策略通常包括增大另类投资的占比,如债权投资计划、信托计划、及投资性房地产等。部分保 险公司还增加了股权投资,尤其是长期股权投资。 在2016年1月开始实施的中国风险导向型偿付能力体系(偿二代)之下,长期股权投资的最低资本要求计算较为有利,其资本要求因子约为15%,而上市股票的资本要求因子则 为31%-48%。此外,长期股权投资不需要按市价计算其资产值,这意味着其至少在售出之前不会带来偿付能力的波动。部分寿险公司已利用这一优势,增持了对单个实体的股权 投资直至对该公司有重大影响,因此可以将其所持股份划分为长期股权投资。 我们认为,长期股权投资的潜在风险并非显着低于其他股权投资。反之,保险公司的风险变得更加集中,因为对单一实体的投资份额增大。我们估计部分保险公司目前对单一实体的股 权投资可以占其权益资本的50%以上。 集中的风险敞口会造成潜在的流动性问题。此类投资可能具有的较长期限意味着其可能无法匹配部分保险公司的短期保险负债结构,特别是那些着重销售万能险产品的公司。当出现预 料之外的流动性需求时,可能需要出售此类投资,由此可能引发巨大的资本损失。不需要按市价计算其资产值的制度亦使潜在损失增大,因为账面价值可能与市场价值完全不同,特别 是当保险公司需要在市场大幅波动的情况下售出该类投资时。 联系人: Terrence Wong(王长泰) 董事 +852 2263 9920 惠誉国际评级有限公司 香港中环德辅道中68号 万宜大厦19楼 Dan Martin 高级分析师 惠誉快讯 +65 6796 7232 本文章最初发布在惠誉快讯的信贷市场评论页面。原文章请参见,文中的所有观点均为惠誉评级所有。 Media Relations: Leslie Tan, Singapore, Tel: +65 67 96 7234, Email:; Wai-Lun Wan, Hong Kong, Tel: +852 2263 9935, Email: 详情参见<a href=""> 注意:本新闻稿为中文译本。如有疑问,请以英文版本为准。 ALL FITCH CREDIT RATINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS.

Reproduction or retransmission in whole or in part is prohibited except by permission. All rights reserved. In issuing and maintaining its ratings and in making other reports (including forecast information), Fitch relies on factual information it receives from issuers and underwriters and from other sources Fitch believes to be credible. Fitch conducts a reasonable investigation of the factual information relied upon by it in accordance with its ratings methodology, and obtains reasonable verification of that information from independent sources, to the extent such sources are available for a given security or in a given jurisdiction. The manner of Fitch’s factual investigation and the scope of the third-party verification it obtains will vary depending on the nature of the rated security and its issuer, the requirements and practices in the jurisdiction in which the rated security is offered and sold and/or the issuer is located, the availability and nature of relevant public information, access to the management of the issuer and its advisers, the availability of pre-existing third-party verifications such as audit reports, agreed-upon procedures letters, appraisals, actuarial reports, engineering reports, legal opinions and other reports provided by third parties, the availability of independent and competent third- party verification sources with respect to the particular security or in the particular jurisdiction of the issuer, and a variety of other factors. Users of Fitch’s ratings and reports should understand that neither an enhanced factual investigation nor any third-party verification can ensure that all of the information Fitch relies on in connection with a rating or a report will be accurate and complete. Ultimately, the issuer and its advisers are responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to Fitch and to the market in offering documents and other reports. In issuing its ratings and its reports, Fitch must rely on the work of experts, including independent auditors with respect to financial statements and attorneys with respect to legal and tax matters. Further, ratings and forecasts of financial and other information are inherently forward-looking and embody assumptions and predictions about future events that by their nature cannot be verified as facts. As a result, despite any verification of current facts, ratings and forecasts can be affected by future events or conditions that were not anticipated at the time a rating or forecast was issued or affirmed. The information in this report is provided “as is” without any representation or warranty of any kind, and Fitch does not represent or warrant that the report or any of its contents will meet any of the requirements of a recipient of the report. A Fitch rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a security. This opinion and reports made by Fitch are based on established criteria and methodologies that Fitch is continuously evaluating and updating. Therefore, ratings and reports are the collective work product of Fitch and no individual, or group of individuals, is solely responsible for a rating or a report. The rating does not address the risk of loss due to risks other than credit risk, unless such risk is specifically mentioned. Fitch is not engaged in the offer or sale of any security. All Fitch reports have shared authorship. Individuals identified in a Fitch report were involved in, but are not solely responsible for, the opinions stated therein. The individuals are named for contact purposes only. A report providing a Fitch rating is neither a prospectus nor a substitute for the information assembled, verified and presented to investors by the issuer and its agents in connection with the sale of the securities. Ratings may be changed or withdrawn at any time for any reason in the sole discretion of Fitch. Fitch does not provide investment advice of any sort. Ratings are not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any security. Ratings do not comment on the adequacy of market price, the suitability of any security for a particular investor, or the tax-exempt nature or taxability of payments made in respect to any security. Fitch receives fees from issuers, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, and underwriters for rating securities. Such fees generally vary from US$1,000 to US$750,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent) per issue. In certain cases, Fitch will rate all or a number of issues issued by a particular issuer, or insured or guaranteed by a particular insurer or guarantor, for a single annual fee. Such fees are expected to vary from US$10,000 to US$1,500,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent). The assignment, publication, or dissemination of a rating by Fitch shall not constitute a consent by Fitch to use its name as an expert in connection with any registration statement filed under the United States securities laws, the Financial Services and Markets Act of 2000 of the United Kingdom, or the securities laws of any particular jurisdiction. Due to the relative efficiency of electronic publishing and distribution, Fitch research may be available to electronic subscribers up to three days earlier than to print subscribers. For Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and South Korea only: Fitch Australia Pty Ltd holds an Australian financial services license (AFS license no. 337123) which authorizes it to provide credit ratings to wholesale clients only. Credit ratings information published by Fitch is not intended to be used by persons who are retail clients within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001
