The Standard Formula of Solvency II

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 Formula of Solvency II

As an introduction or a refresher to the major risk based solvency scheme, this workshop can be attended solely or in combination with the preceding workshop “Risk, Capital and Solvency Models – an ORSA Perspective”. The workshop provides an in-depth overview of the standard framework. It addresses the underlying theory and concepts as well as its practical implementations with Excel® templates.

The workshop focuses on Solvency II and reviews the major risks in the standard formula in the context of the basic principles underlying Solvency II. For all solvency practitioners wishing to consolidate their Solvency II skills or to familiarize themselves with specific practical implementations of the standard formula, this is the ideal opportunity to complement and refine their competencies. This workshop takes places successively to the workshops “The Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test” and “Risk, Capital and Solvency Models – an ORSA Perspective”, therefore, the relating workshops can be combined at a reduced fee.
