Solvency II by iFACTS
The Solvency II directive is a challenge for the insurance industry. Instead of inventing a specific solution, iFACTS offers a universal governance approach to Solvency II based on the iFACTS Lean Governance technique in combination with INSMAN.
Governance support for Solvency II
Solvency II and its challenges have been on the agenda of insurance companies in recent years. The industry requires a new, versatile governance structure.
Multiple participants, such as independent auditors, risk experts and financial resources, must be involved.
Lean governance approach
Rather than inventing a specific process and functionality for Solvency II, organizations can utilize a universal governance technique. Lean Governance by iFACTS is proven in several areas such as risk management, IT governance and compliance with regulation, for example FFFS.
INSMAN, insurance management, and Lean Governance support the workflow in Solvency II pillars 1-3. INSMAN holds important measurements online such as claim information and reserves, IBNR, premium reserves and related data for pillar 1. Lean Governance supports policies, risk management, event reporting, board decisions, KPI follow-up, control and audit that are specified in pillar 2. The iFACTS software as a transparent IT-solution supports the disclosure and reporting requirements in pillar 3.
The combination of INSMAN and Lean Governance by iFACTS, provides an effective tool when managing Solvency II.
Important metrics include
- Premium reserve
- Sum insured
- Claims reserve
- Solvency /Minimal capital requirement
- Outsourcing compliance level
- Solvency II overall compliance level
- Captive yearly milestone progress status
