The SST ratio is a function of available and required capital based on an economic valuation of assets and liabilities with an integrated forward-looking assessment of underwriting, financial market and credit risk and, therefore, our SST ratio could fluctuate from reporting date to reporting date, and such fluctuations could be significant. SST ratios filed with our regulator are subject to the regulator’s review and approval of the internal model. See "Note on risk factors" and "Cautionary note on forward-looking statements" in our most recent annual or quarterly report for factors that could affect the SST ratio.
