SimˈpōzēəmGideon Benari, Editor, Solvency II Wire Look-through reporting for assets under Solvency II is set to impact not only the relationship between insurers and supervisors but also that of insurers and asset managers. The increase in detail and frequency of reporting on one hand, and shortening of delivery timetables on the other, will demand closer interaction and understanding between all parties concerned. A number of unresolved questions remain about data validation, information ownership and cost. The ensuing lack of clarity is adding to the uncertainty and anxiety of insurers and asset managers. This written symposium seeks to address some of these questions by bringing together three experts to debate the subject in a series of articles. Over the coming weeks Carlos Montalvo, Executive Director, EIOPA, Oliver Bäte, Chief Financial Office, Allianz SE and Dr Nathalie Aubry-Stacey, Director – Market Practice and Regulatory Policy Department, International Capital Market Association (ICMA), will each present their views on the subject. Each participant will then have an opportunity to respond and propose ways of moving forward. By choosing to narrow in on a specific part of the reporting requirements the symposium will facilitate a deeper understanding of the challenges facing the regulator and the industry and explore ways that they can be overcome.
