IFRS 4 Phase II and IFRS 9 alignment with Solvency II

We consider the following eight factors to be key factors when considering Solvency II alignment with IFRS.

Whilst elements of the traditional revenue account presentation remain under the new IFRS

External financial and regulatory reporting

requirements, the mechanics of recognition have significantly changed to a margin-based approach. The profit and loss attribution under Solvency II is similar but the principle of profit recognition in IFRS (profit is recognised with the fulfilment of the obligations under the in-force policies) is different from the principle of surplus recognition under Solvency II (measured on an hypothetical exit value of the in-force policies). This key difference requires appropriate processes and controls and additional modelling for the IFRS profit.

Compliance Activities

Strategy and Governance

Currently IFRS permits different valuations of insurance liabilities within the same group. This will terminate with the new IFRS for Insurance and will introduce a new meaning for valuation compliance.

The management of both assets and liabilities form an integral part of a company’s strategy for both profit and capital volatility management. Early planning could be required given the high potential for the new IFRS financial instrument standard mandating adoption ahead of the new IFRS insurance standards.

Incentivisation and remuneration of employees will need to be recalibrated within the Solvency II and IFRS frameworks as well as the wider entity level strategy and governance structures.

People and Culture

Educating both management and staff on how an insurer’s success is measured under both Solvency II and IFRS will require a significant investment in training that will enable the alignment of behaviours to the new capital and profit metrics.  Additionally, we need to consider organisational implications in terms of culture, changes to peoples’ roles and responsibilities and rewards and benefits.

Insurers will need to consider how and what to communicate for the revised IFRS profit targets and consider the level of linkage with future strategic risk appetite

Market Reporting

The ability to frequently understand and monitor the drivers of the changes between the two bases will be key to ensure transparency to external as well as internal stakeholders.

There will be additional pressure to the existing Solvency II timescales to produce simultaneously, the


IFRS statements and disclosures to permit sufficient time to analyse and reconcile the results.

The data requirements for IFRS and Solvency II overlap. However IFRS introduces data that was not


contemplated in the Solvency II data model and requires similar parameters to be calibrated differently.

Cost hierarchies and cost allocation systems will need updating to provide an appropriate level of direct acquisition costs incurred at portfolio level, as well as the separation of any overhead elements between the liability valuation bases.


 Additionally, developing a residual margin amortisation model which can be updated at each reporting date will have significant system implications, especially as no equivalent base exists under Solvency II.

Impacts of IFRS changes on the Solvency II Pillars

The most significant impacts of IFRS on Solvency II will be:

Pillar 1 

Refinement of the Solvency II calculations.

New calculations (e.g., Residual margin).

Flexibility around existing systems to meet IFRS Insurance requirements (e.g., insurance vs investment contracts scoping, direct acquisition costs).

New systems. Target Operating Model (TOM) and WDT impacts layered onto Solvency II and the need for robust reconciliations (Solvency II to IFRS).

Liability data requirements are likely to be more granular than those for Solvency II.

Increased need for scarce and costly resources (e.g., Actuarial).

Pillar 2 

Minimal impact due to IFRS. The economic balance sheet offers under Pillar 2, greater similarities to IFRS valuation than the Pillar 1 balance sheet. This is due to the more limited regulatory requirements on the parameters used for the Pillar 2 economic balance sheet.

All of the impacts will influence the design of the TOM affecting process, data and technology.

Pillar 3 

6 May 2013

New reporting requirements for IFRS could be built onto/alongside the Solvency II reporting requirements.
