EIOPA published the first annual report that provides an overview of the insurance sector in Europe, as an extension of its statistical services. The report is based on annually reported Solvency II information. This ensures that the data has a high coverage from all countries and has been reported consistently across the European Economic Area.
The report, which is objective, factual and data driven, does not contain analysis or policy messages. All indicators used in the report have been calculated from the reported data from undertakings. While the coverage of topics and indicators is intended to be relatively stable over time, the report will be adapted to respond to changes in the micro-prudential and supervisory priorities. The report will, therefore, support the supervisory community and industry with highly relevant and easily accessible data at the European level. All the data depicted via charts is available for download separately.
