Course Summary:

The aims of this full day course are to provide an introduction to the implementation of the Solvency II Directive in Ireland.

Solvency II is a European Union legislative initiative for regulating insurance businesses by setting out capital and corporate governance requirements. This represents a major change in the way insurance undertakings organise themselves and are regulated.  It takes effect in January 2014 and will bring about a significant change in the way risk is viewed. Firms must define their own risk profile and show that they have sufficient capital to meet this level. Firms must also demonstrate that they have sufficient risk management and corporate governance mechanisms in place.

Course Contents: 

Solvency II introduces a number of new capital requirements – the Minimum Capital Requirement and the Solvency Capital Requirement. It also imposes a new architecture on insurance firms, requiring the establishment of risk and control functions.
