© LloydsSolvency II May 200912 Pillar 1 requires demonstration of adequate financial resources Minimum Capital Requirement (MCR) Below the MCR, policyholders are exposed to unacceptable risk. Breaching the MCR leads to serious supervisory action. Calculation method yet to be finalised. Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) At a confidence level of 99.5% over one year. May be calculated using standard formula… …or an internal model, with supervisory approval. Both calculation methods take at least six specified risk modules into account.
© LloydsSolvency II May 200913 Pillar 2 includes developing and embedding governance requirements An insurer must have an effective risk management system… …owned and implemented by senior management. Must consider all risks to which insurer is exposed. Risk and capital management must be integrated. An insurer must undertake an Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA). Internal risk assessment process. Aims to ensure senior management have conducted a review of risks… …and that the insurer holds sufficient capital against those risks.
© LloydsSolvency II May 200914 Pillar 3: harnessing market discipline to support regulatory objectives Aims to ensure consistent supervisory reporting and disclosure across the EU. Detailed harmonised reporting requirements still to be finalised. Insurers should be prepared to disclose more information publicly than at present. Likely to require two different types of report: Public, annual Solvency and Financial Condition report; Further information needed for the purposes of supervision.

Lloyds will seek FSA approval for an internal model… …And syndicate internal models will be key components of Lloyds internal model. Current capital regime - UK ICAS. Lloyds experience of ICAS will help it to meet Solvency II. Importance of Letters of Credit recognised. Ongoing discussions with the FSA about the implementation of Solvency II at Lloyds.
© LloydsSolvency II May 200917 Solvency II - Conclusions This is an ambitious proposal that will completely overhaul the way we ensure the financial soundness of our insurers. We are setting a world-leading standard that requires insurers to focus on managing all the risks they face and enables them to operate much more efficiently. Its good news for consumers, for the insurance industry and for the EU economy as a whole. Charlie McCreevy, EU Internal Market and Services Commissioner
