The article discusses the implications of Solvency II and what Asian regulators and insurers can do to prepare for it. In the European Union (EU), the risk-based approach for insurers is known as Solvency II and scheduled to be effective from early 2013. Solvency II relies on market-consistently valued assets and liabilities. EU officials argue that Solvency II will provide policyholders with more transparency and improved risk-adjusted prices.
