Opera Reporting

OPERA Reporting is a specialized financial reporting framework used by insurance companies to comply with regulatory requirements. It involves the reporting of key financial data and risk-related information to regulatory authorities to ensure solvency and protect policyholders’ interests.
Effortlessly manage OPERA reporting with IVP Regulatory Reporting Solution. Optimize data handling and ensure seamless compliance.

Fact Sheet

Login Required

Investors and regulators place a high priority on risk disclosure and transparency. Open Protocol Enabling Risk Aggregation (OPERA) is a private sector initiative designed to improve transparency by offering a unified risk framework with consistent data inputs, standard calculation algorithms, and regular and timely reporting. By implementing OPERA, organizations can streamline risk management practices, gain comprehensive insights, and make more informed decisions based on accurate risk assessments.

When to Submit

OPERA reports are submitted to Albourne (an OPERA co-chair) and investors on a monthly or quarterly basis. OPERA reports have three degrees of granularity, referred to as Grade 1, 2, or 3. Grade 1 is the least detailed report and Grade 3 is the most detailed. Because OPERA is an open protocol, it standardizes reporting procedures for the collection, collation, and conveying of risk and exposure data, increasing overall transparency for investors.

OPERA Reporting Challenges

There are four big challenges asset managers and others typically experience with respect to OPERA reporting:

  1. Data complexity: Dealing with data from multiple sources and formats can make the aggregation process complex and time-consuming.
  2. Data inconsistency: Inconsistent data definitions and formats across systems can hinder accurate risk aggregation and analysis.
  3. Regulatory compliance: Meeting regulatory requirements for risk reporting and disclosure can be challenging due to the complexities of aggregating and reporting accurate risk data.
  4. Operational efficiency: Manual data collection and aggregation processes can be labor-intensive and prone to errors, affecting operational efficiency.
