EIOPA published the fourth and last parallel technical information on the relevant risk-free interest rate, or RFR, term structures, with reference to the end of December 2019, based on Refinitiv data. This parallel publication reflects the content of the technical documentation published on October 01, 2019 and is based on risk-free interest rate coding released on October 08, 2019; it will allow stakeholders to compare their own calculations with those of EIOPA before the official publications for the end of January 2020.
EIOPA also published monthly technical information on the risk-free interest rate term structures with reference to the end of December 2019. EIOPA is informing that a bug, which was spotted in the derivation of the weights of the country corporate part of the representative portfolios, has been fixed. Technical information related to the risk-free interest rate term structures is used to calculate technical provisions for (re)insurance obligations. In line with the Solvency II Directive, EIOPA publishes technical information relating to the risk-free interest rate term structures on a monthly basis. This is intended to ensure consistent calculation of technical provisions across Europe, and, thus, higher supervisory convergence for the benefit of the European insurance policyholders.
