CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Highline Data, the premier provider of insurance industry financial statements and market data, is pleased to introduce a revolutionary new way to analyze risk-based capital: the RBC Calculator for Insurance Analyst PRO.

The RBC Calculator empowers financial professionals to easily determine the impact of a change to a company's portfolio, assets, or underwriting results to its risk-based capital ratio by enabling them to:

  • Adjust any of the statement values that are included in the RBC formulae used by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.  The RBC Calculator generates a revised risk-based capital ratio and figure based on these new values.
  • Predict the combined risk-based capital ratio and figure following a merger of two or more companies.
  • Pinpoint the top five factors that contributed to year-over-year changes to a company's risk-based capital. 
  • Identify the strongest and weakest members of any group of companies.

The RBC Calculator is ideal for insurance company chief financial officers, competitive intelligence and strategic planning executives, investment advisors, M&A specialists, and reinsurance professionals.

"We're bringing an unparalleled level of transparency to insurers' risk-based capital analysis with our new RBC Calculator.  As the industry continues to undergo major upheavals, we are offering our clients a solution that provides a detailed risk assessment of each individual insurance company's financial health," Laurie Dallaire, vice president of Highline Data, said.  

"Whether you are an insurer looking for new growth strategies, an investor trying to build the strongest portfolio, or an M&A consultant exploring new opportunities, the RBC Calculator offers the tools you need to make smart business decisions," Dallaire said.

The RBC Calculator is available to subscribers to Insurance Analyst PRO.  Insurance Analyst PRO is the industry's leading source for insurance statutory and GAAP financial analysis.
