The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) announces that the second
Solvency II Workshop on Public Disclosure will be held on Thursday,
12 May 2016 from 10:00 to 13:00 h GMT at the Prudential Regulatory Authority's premises in
One of the major challenges linked with the implementation of Solvency II is the correct evaluation and interpretation of undertakings' (financial) position. One of Solvency II's key principles is the disclosure of relevant information to third parties. It is important that this information is correctly understood, interpreted and analysed.
The aim of the workshop is to enhance the understanding of the prudential balance sheet, by addressing some particular intricacies such as the volatility of the prudential requirements, the impact of long term guarantee measures and transitionals, the meaning of capital add-ons or the use internal models. The workshop will also touch on the specificities of Solvency II in light of financial reporting.
Participants will obtain an overview of the regularly and ad-hoc disclosure of Solvency II information.
With this workshop EIOPA will present to and discuss with
professional users including
financial journalists the scope, content, means and interpretation of the information to be disclosed under Solvency II, how the information should be analysed and what contributions could be made to enhance the understanding of the information.
Information specialists and
NCAs' Spokespersons are also welcome to attend. It should be noted that the topics addressed during the workshop are in some areas technical. Therefore knowledge of Solvency II, in particular of the quantitative requirements, is essential.
Important note: The workshop is conducted under
Chatham House rules.
The working language of the event is English.
Programme is available here.
