Are you ready for Solvency II?

  • Share

Solvency II’s proposed implementation date is 1 January 2014. By that time, insurers will have to make significant changes to their finance systems, restate their balance sheets for Solvency II, and prepare for greater public disclosure of financial statements, modeling and capital calculations. Are you ready?

Our dedicated Solvency II Task Force was created to address Solvency II issues over time, focusing on conceptual development and related multidisciplinary assurance and advisory services. The Task Force will continue to provide thought leadership reports, offering insights into the evolution of Solvency II and its impact on the European insurance industry.
