“Bridging the Gap Between Risk Appetite And Required Capital Structure”

Solvency II has made the transition from a future uncertainty to present concern and from a specialist subject to an issue of far broader interest. Solvency II will bring a common, risk-based approach to capital setting, supervision and disclosure to the whole of Europe.

The European Union’s Solvency II regulations covering insurance industry are now approaching rapidly. There has been a great amount of discussion already about how the new regulations will be put into practice to captive insurance companies. Even though the new rules are still in the consultation phase insurance companies should be preparing risk and capital adequacy now. This new mandate will radically change how firms allocate, calculate and manage capital.

Solvency II is expected to be implemented in 2013 when a wave of corporate refinancing is due by that time. Therefore, being ready for Solvency II will mean gaining a considerable competitive advantage within the industry. This new regulation is a business priority.“It is about much more than simple law regulation and is already preoccupying chief risk investments officers. Solvency II is one of the most wide-ranging regulatory reforms the insurance industry has seen, and promises to have a far-reaching impact on all European insurance and reinsurance companies.” client adviser at JP Morgan asset management clarified.

Among others, General Manager and Chief Insurance Risk Officer Jeroen Potjes (ING Group) will give a flavor of the trends which will be indispensable for Solvency II Professionals to shape a robust and competitive European insurance industry at the upcoming forum - Solving Solvency II Summit. This must attend event organized by Fleming Europe will convene in Amsterdam on 6th - 7th October 2011. If you would like to discover the most timely key strategies of Solvency II, the capital of The Netherlands is the place to be.
