Do Solvency II changes go far enough?

This article was produced by Invesco as part of their valued industry partnership to Insurance Investor.

The last issue of The Insurance Investment Management Insights for 2021 has just been published, keeping you in the know about the latest developments affecting the insurance industry.

In this issue, Elizabeth Gillam, Head of EU Government Relations and Public Policy, examines the Solvency II review and asks whether the changes go far enough. Charles Moussier, Head of EMEA Insurance Investment Solutions, also looks at what this means for insurers in a market where yields are back to pre‐COVID‐19 levels across Europe.
