Solvency II


Sovency IIIn October 2010, Deloitte gave a Learning-on-the-Go presentation about the ORSA. Since then, new guidance has been published and the development of the ORSA has moved to the next maturity state. Still there are many different views on what the ORSA should look like. Different departments have different ideas on what framework should be used and what should be the main focus.

In 2011, the DNB organized an ORSA pilot for the Dutch insurance market. The main conclusions were that the ORSA is comprehensive and that for a proper ORSA several repetitions are needed.

In the end of 2012, DNB organizes a new ORSA exercise called 'de generale repetitie'.

All the more reason to organize a new learning session about the ORSA. The learning session will take place on:

Date: 26 September 2012
Time: 14:30 - 17:00
Location: Deloitte Den Haag, Schenkkade 47, Den Haag

Risk Mitigating Actions – April 11 2012
Unlike Solvency I, Solvency II requires a risk based calculation of risk capital (SCR). The prescribed methodology (the Standard Formula) gives room for lowering the SCR by using certain risk mitigating actions. Not only the possible reduction in SCR from a ‘calculation background’, but also tax implications were highlighted. During this session, the restrictions and opportunities of several risk mitigating actions were discussed. RGA concluded the presentation with a practical example of using reinsurance to increase the solvency of the balance sheet.

Model Validation – February 1 2012
Solvency II introduces a new method for calculating regulatory capital. On top of this, supervision is much more strict when it comes down to the model documentation and validation, especially when applying for an internal model. What are the key subjects that need to be covered when validating a model and what requirements are set for the model validation team?

Data Management – December 7 2011
According to Solvency II, data used should be accurate, complete and appropriate. But what does that mean? And how can you set up processes to ensure that this is the case for each component in the calculation and reporting process? Furthermore, efficient data cleaning techniques, based on mathematical and econometric principles, were presented.

Model Practice in a Solvency II framework – March 28 2011
The introduction of Solvency II introduces more strict requirements to the models used for calculation of the technical provisions and capital requirements. Therefore, Deloitte performed a second Global Model Practice Survey in which 89 different companies participated. One of the key findings presented during the learning session was the poor auditability and vulnerability of Excel used in modeling. SecondFloor presented their reporting solution in which spreadsheets can be used in a robust, transparent and auditable environment.

Pillar II & ORSA – October 13 2010
Back to Solvency II. During this session, the focus was on the second pillar of Solvency II. Both the level I and level II regulations of Solvency II gave little grip on the ORSA process which was introduced in the framework directive. Therefore, bringing together the opinion of Deloitte and several insurance companies, who are all struggling with this new continuous assessment, was an essential step in the process of awareness of the ORSA.
