Nine months on from the January 2016 Solvency II compliance deadline, insurance firms and asset managers should have satisfactory responses to the regulation in place. But how effectively are they meeting the regulatory data requirement for the look-through and reporting elements of the regulation, and how best can they achieve not only compliance, but also improved operational efficiency, reduced costs and competitive advantage?

  • The state of play around Solvency II
  • Approaches to the regulation’s data requirement
  • Operational gains from effective data management
  • Business benefits of streamlined compliance
