A Shift From Compliance Monitoring to Evaluating Insurer Risk

Solvency II is an EU legislative program to harmonize the EU-wide insurance regulatory system and ensure EU insurance companies hold enough capital to reduce the risk of insolvency.

The key objectives of Solvency II are as follows:

  • Improved consumer protection: It will ensure a uniform and enhanced level of policyholder protection across the EU. A more robust system will give policyholders greater confidence in the products of insurers.
  • Modernized supervision: The “Supervisory Review Process” will shift supervisors’ focus from compliance monitoring and capital to evaluating insurers’ risk profiles and the quality of their risk management and governance systems.
  • Deepened EU market integration: Through the harmonization of supervisory systems.
  • Increased international competitiveness of EU insurers.
