Risk Management for Insurers (3rd edition)


The introduction of Solvency II will drastically redesign the supervisory rules for regulatory capital for insurance companies. The insurance industry is therefore in desperate need of an up-to-date risk management book which contains a comprehensive exploration of Solvency II before implementation begins. The resilience of risk management systems in anticipation of Solvency II must be ensured.

This incredibly timely new edition of Risk Management for Insurers places this regulation within the wider context of insurance risk management best practice. Industry expert René Doff presents this fully updated accessible reference for the whole insurance industry that newly includes:

  • More detailed discussion of Solvency II, with its three pillars examined separately;
  • The latest technical guidance from the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority and the European Commission;
  • The impact of risk governance and risk culture;
  • An up-to-date overview of Basel III; and
  • The significance of the International Financial Reporting Standards.
