Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test

Prime Re Academy is pleased to invite you to attend the workshop in Zurich, Switzerland during its Solency week in October 2018 where focus will be set on the following topic:

The Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test

As an introduction or a refresher to the major risk based solvency scheme, Prime Re Academy offers a workshop where an in-depth overview of the standard framework is reflected. The workshop focuses on the Swiss Solvency Test (SST) and reviews all the modules of the FINMA template. For actuaries wishing to enhance their SST modeling skills or facing their first SST submission, this is an optimal chance to sharpen their expertise. The workshop addresses both the underlying theory and concept as well as the practical implementations with Excel® templates. Participants should bring along their personal laptops. This workshop can be combined with the successive workshops “Risk, Capital and Solvency Models – an ORSA Perspective” and “The Standard Formula of Solvency II” at a reduced fee.
