    EIOPA Updates Risk Dashboard for Second Quarter of 2019

    October 25, 2019

    EIOPA published the updated risk dashboard for the second quarter of 2019. The dashboard is based on the Solvency II data for the second quarter of 2019 and summarizes the key risks and vulnerabilities in the insurance sector in EU. The data used are based on financial stability and prudential reporting from 96 insurance groups and 2,852 solo insurance undertakings. Overall, the results show that risk exposures of the insurance sector in EU remains stable, compared to July 2019.

    The results show that macro and market risks continue at a high level. The volatility of bonds, the largest asset class, also increased. Credit risks continue at a medium level, with somewhat lower Credit Default Swap spreads for most bond segments and broadly stable credit quality of asset portfolios. The signs of potential risk mispricing also prevail. No major changes have been observed in the credit quality of insurers’ investments. Profitability and solvency risks are also at a medium level. The results also show that the Solvency Capital Requirement, or SCR, ratios for both groups and non-life undertakings have remained broadly stable, though a decline across the whole distribution has been observed for life undertakings. Liquidity and funding risks continue to be at the medium level, with cash holdings and liquid assets ratio—the two liquidity indicators—remaining broadly stable.
