Significant recent developments in insurance regulation

There have been significant recent European developments regarding the Solvency II Directive.

This information is available in English only.

Since Solvency II’s implementation will most likely be postponed to 1 January 2016, the Dutch Ministry of Finance has recently taken steps towards creating a more risk-oriented regulatory regime for insurance companies. These new rules are expected to come into force on 1 January 2014.

Our Solvency II Update addresses these developments. On a national level, the Dutch Ministry of Finance has taken steps towards creating a more risk-oriented regulatory framework for insurance companies, anticipating Solvency II’s entry into force. We have discussed this new framework in a separate Legal Alert.
