    PRA Proposes Amendments on Longevity Risk Transfers Under Solvency II

    February 05, 2019

    PRA published the consultation paper CP3/19, which sets out proposals to update the supervisory statement (SS18/16) on longevity risk transfers under Solvency II. PRA proposes to change its expectations for pre-notification of longevity risk transfers and hedge arrangements and to update the key risks arising from longevity risk transfers. Comments are requested by May 06, 2019. CP3/19 is relevant to PRA-authorized UK firms that fall within the scope of the Solvency II Directive and to the Society of Lloyd’s.

    PRA proposes to update SS18/16 to change its expectations for how firms notify PRA of new longevity risk transfer arrangements and to highlight an additional key risk (basis risk) that should be included in firms’ assessments of the residual risks these transactions give rise to. The proposed changes differentiate between the level of pre-notification expected for large and/or complex transactions and other transactions. For large and/or complex transactions, which are defined in the updated SS18/16, PRA does not propose to change how firms engage with PRA in advance of their execution. However, for other transactions, PRA proposes to streamline the notification process by enabling firms to report these via a template. In addition to simplifying and standardizing the information firms are required to provide to PRA, this will also remove the need for the information to be reviewed by PRA in advance.
