ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance on the implementation of Solvency II compliance regulation, particularly for European Union insurers. It stresses the need for insurers to implement a risk-based system that aligns capital requirements with the true underlying risks of the company. It looks at four perspectives on Solvency II which represent different entry points and levels of preparedness for insurers to determine where to focus their regulatory energies.
