EV (Embedded Value) is the sum of "adjusted net worth", which is calculated by making necessary adjustments to total net assets on the balance sheet, and "value of in-force business", which is calculated as prevent value of future after-tax profits on in-force business less present value of cost of capital. EV is one of the indicators that represents corporate value for shareholders.
Under current statutory accounting practices applicable to life insurance companies in Japan, there is a time lag between the sale of policies and recognition of profits. The use of EV allows the contribution of future profit from the new business to be recognized at the time of sale. It therefore serves as a valuable supplement to statutory financial information.
The Dai-ichi Life Group discloses its EV and the published reports are available on "EV Report".
