About EIOPA insurance statistics

EIOPA publishes statistics based on quantitative Solvency II reporting from insurance undertakings and groups in the European Union and the European Economic Area (EEA).

These statistics are published on a quarterly basis. Every publication is accompanied by a note describing the key aspects of the statistics published. The tables and charts are available in PDF and Excel format and are based on information from the statistics at the publication date.

The statistics contain aggregated country level information about the balance sheet, asset exposures,  own funds, capital requirements, premiums, claims and expenses and  refer to the latest information available at the extraction date.

EIOPA also publishes the European Insurance Overview report annually.
