Solvency II

In light of the guidelines set down for financial institutions by the Basel Committee on banking supervision, the Solvency II regulatory insurance framework and the advice from the European Insurance and Occupational Authority (EIOPA): Insurers and their asset servicers are now obliged to have a deeper understanding of the trading and investment risks that they have entered into and/or are connected to and the levels of capital that they need to keep in reserve. 

Thomson Reuters has a team of regulatory solutions specialists who are available to assist firms to deal with the challenges Solvency II presents, simply click here to contact us today.

No longer can related firms solely focus their attention on the potential returns they may obtain, but must now actively consider their risk exposure to their current and future investments, over prolonged periods of time and must ensure that they have sufficient capital reserves to meet any potential risks that they may face at any stage during the agreed timeframe.

In many cases the obligation to provide this data is falling to asset servicers such as Asset Managers, Fund Administrators and Custodians in addition to third party vendors who support differing Insurers:

  • ASSET MANAGER must provide verified reports of the funds assets -look through approach
  • CUSTODIAN & FUND ADMINISTRATOR must provide asset & positions data for risk evaluation
  • INSURER must evaluate the capital required to cover its real risks & provide formatted reports quarterly
