Capital Positions - Australia

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) is the prudential regulator of the Australian financial services industry. APRA establish and enforce prudential standards and practices on the institutions they supervise in order to protect the financial interests of the Australian community.

The Capital Adequacy Prudential Standards (LPS 110 and GPS 110) require an insurance company to maintain adequate capital against the risks associated with its activities. A key feature of the standards is also a requirement that the insurer make certain public disclosures about its capital adequacy position.

The capital disclosures below have been prepared for the purpose of satisfying these requirements and to improve the understanding of policy owners and other market participants of each company’s capital adequacy.
