Solvency II is a fundamental and wide-ranging reform of EU insurance. The aims of solvency II include: greater risk awareness in insurance companies, enhanced protection for policyholders, greater competitiveness between EU insurers, and a deeper single insurance services market across the EU. Like the Basel III Capital Accord, Solvency II is based on a three pillars approach. Pillar I covers regulatory capital requirements, Pillar II deals with governance and supervision, while Pillar III outlines standards for disclosure and transparency. The new regime also establishes the European System of Financial Supervision (ESFS), a two-tier framework of micro- and macro-level surveillance for financial supervision.
