ISSUES OF RISK MARGIN COMPUTATION UNDER SOLVENCY II REGULATORY REGIME

Abstract

The paper deals with the issues of risk margin computation as an element of technical provisions of Insurers under the Solvency II regulatory regime. Due to a lack of regulatory method for the capital cost, in combination with the low interest rates, the risk margin is set too high and variable, which primarily affects life insurance companies. The paper includes particular proposals for overcoming or mitigating the problem of too high and rate-sensitive risk margin. The proposed solutions include both modifications to the existing capital cost method and abandonment and the replacement of this method by other risk margin computation methods.

Key words: risk margin, Solvency II, capital cost rate, technical provisions
