French term or phrase:équation financière
From an article on the insurance industry, (comments by the CEO of a major international business insurance firm)
L'équation financière des assureurs, dont les actifs sont très impactés par la crise et qui souffrent sur leur activité vie, rend le retournement de cycle inéluctable.
Explanation: I am not sure how to phrase this in English but here they mean "the financial equity/balance" of the insurance industry is jeopardized by the global situation as regards to the balance of their different activities, ie. here they mention "l'activité vie" = life insurance activity" is going down.
