The Ultimate Political Debate on Solvency II

Wednesday, 16 May 2012

We are delighted to announce that Peter Skinner, MEP and Rapporteur for the European Parliament for Solvency II and EIOPA and long-time member of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON), will join Jonathan Evans MP, in a lively debate from both a national and European viewpoint on the opportunities and challenges that Solvency II presents during the forthcoming ICMIF Solvency II Solutions seminar on May 24, 2012.

For ICMIF members this is the ideal opportunity to learn about the current state of play for Solvency II implementation and specifically about the issues and benefits for the mutual and cooperative sector during the ICMIF Solvency II Solutions Seminar which takes place on Thursday, May 24, 2012 in London, UK. The event is completely free of charge for ICMIF members and places are still available but it is essential to register in advance. Please register now.

During the recent ICMIF Meeting of Reinsurance Officials (MORO) in Paris, the President of Willis Re (an ICMIF Supporting Member), Paddy Jago, talked to delegates about the Solvency II Solutions seminar saying that the current regulatory environment facing mutual insurers would be discussed during the seminar and therefore “I would encourage everyone who is able to attend”. He went on to explain how the unique one day seminar will explore how mutuals can maximise their capital flexibility within the constraints of the standard model, and benefit from the Solvency II process.

Also at the MORO conference Nick Charteris-Black, Managing Director, Market Development EMEA, for A.M. Best, told delegates that the Solvency II Solutions seminar “is an event purely focused on Solvency II and the issues for ICMIF members and it’s really for those who want to debate and discuss what the implications of Solvency II will be for the mutual sector. There is still a lot of uncertainty and hopefully a number of views and perspectives will come out of the sessions.”

The full agenda can be found on the ICMIF web site along with the biographies of the expert speakers who will be presenting at the event plus a delegate list. We urge you to secure your place by registering now for this special event for ICMIF members.
