From the Inside Flap:

As a major regulation covering the solvency of European life and non-life insurers, Solvency II is expected to be uniformly implemented across the European Union (EU) in 2012. Inspired to some extent by banking's Basel II legislation, Solvency II will use a similar three-pillar structure that will cover both quantitative elements and qualitative aspects that influence the risk-standing of an insurer. The principles-based nature of the regime represents a far-reaching innovation in risk-based regulation. It presents an immediate challenge and opportunity to the European insurance industry, but is also being observed with keen interest by industry players and regulators around the world.

A practical foundation to the Solvency II process for executives, practitioners, and consultants, Executive's Guide to Solvency II covers everything you need to know about this important directive—all in one accessible source—with coverage of:

  • The history of insurance in terms of the individual's need for financial diversification

  • A chronology of the Solvency II project process

  • The continued relevance of regulation in its current institutional genre

  • The structure of Solvency II, with specific focus on requirements insurers must fulfill under a holistic three-pillar risk management approach

  • The risk-based economic balance-sheet approach, its quantitative requirements, and calibration under the standard formula approach

  • Techniques, challenges, and complexities of internal models

  • Why you need the right people, processes, and systems to successfully drive an enterprise-wide risk management project

It's time for your organization to get familiar with the new rules of this regulation that will have far-reaching implications, initially for EU insurers, and thereafter around the world, as regulators move toward principles-based regulation. Destined to become your standard reference for answers on Solvency II, Executive's Guide to Solvency II is full of practical advice, compiling an overview of the many issues your company will likely face in dealing with this forthcoming regulation.

From the Back Cover:

Your complete, no-nonsense guide to Solvency II

Solvency II is a well-thought?out regulation, carrying an implication for transforming the European insurance industry to a common set of standards and principles, and in so doing, creating a more stable insurance industry. Full of valuable guidance, Executive's Guide to Solvency II keeps you current on the latest developments regarding this important regulation.

This well-written primer will challenge your concept—or preconception—of Solvency II, providing an introductory look at its potential impact on the European insurance industry. Authoritative, comprehensive, and insightful, it provides an inside look at:

  • The evolution of insurance

  • Insurers' risks

  • Why Solvency II originated

  • How it compares to Basel II

  • Regulation in context of the credit crisis

  • The economic balance sheet

  • Internal models

  • The goals of Solvency II

  • The expected complexities of Solvency II

  • The benefits of Solvency II

  • What your business needs to do to achieve implementation

With real-world guidance addressing pitfalls that may arise, Executive's Guide to Solvency II expertly explains how Solvency II will work to your business's advantage as a best practice risk management framework and a future regulatory compliance requirement.
