Seven big Nordic life insurance companies were interviewed to find out how intensified regulation and especially Solvency II has affected their product strategy.

Variable annuities could be a compromise between traditional and unit liked businesses, but the companies do not write variable annuities very intensely.

In this respect the companies differ from a current trend in Southern and Central Europe according to which banks are lightening their holdings in insurance companies.

Det var fråga om ett multikriteriellt beslutsproblem, där kriterierna ofta är svåra att kvantifiera och jämföra. I undersökningen utreddes också eventuella kompromissmodeller som flera beslutsfattargrupper kan omfatta samt olika gruppers förståelse för varandras
