Stephen Haddrill, director general of the Association of British Insurers, says he is optimistic and believes on the high hopes on Solvency II's framework towards the insurance markets. However, European insurers were worried although Solvency II provided a commitment for a more percipient regulatory structure. Problems on the implementation of solvency standards are also discussed.
