Solvency II Overview

Solvency II Directive 2009/138/EC is an EU Directive that codifies and harmonizes the EU insurance regulation. Primarily this concerns the amount of capital that EU insurance companies must hold to reduce the risk of insolvency. EU insurance legislation aims to unify a single EU insurance market and enhance consumer protection.

Solvency II Pillars:

  • Under Pillar One a regulated firm is required to hold a prudent excess of assets over liabilities. Pillar One sets out how the amount of liabilities, including technical provisions, is to be measured; how the SCR is to be calculated; which assets are eligible to be held to match liabilities and cover the SCR; and, how those assets are to be valued.
  • The Second Pillar contains qualitative requirements on undertakings such as risk management as well as supervisory activities. An insurance firm is required to have effective strategies and process to assess and manage the risks. Those strategies and processes should be subject to review by the supervisory authority.
  • Pillar Three covers supervisory reporting and disclosure. Firms will need to disclose certain information publicly, which will bring market discipline.
