An Information Management Approach to Solvency II

From MIKE2.0 Methodology

Jump to: navigation, search

Solvency II is a fundamental review of the capital adequacy regime for European insurers and reinsurers, planned to take effect from October 2012. The new framework will be based on a three-pillar approach comprising:

1.       Quantitative requirements for measuring capital adequacy (Pillar I)

2.       A supervisory review process including review of risk management practices (Pillar II)

3.       Increased transparency and reporting requirements (Pillar III)

A solvency capital requirement aims to achieve the following purposes:

  • To reduce the risk that an insurer would be unable to meet claims;
  • To reduce the losses suffered by policyholders in the event that a firm is unable to meet all claims fully;
  • To provide supervisors early warning so that they can intervene promptly if capital falls below the required level; and
  • Solvency I concentrate mainly on the liabilities side (i.e. insurance risks), Solvency 2 will also take account of the asset-side risks i,e; a 'total balance sheet' type approach.
