Risk Dashboards

The Risk Dashboard presents EIOPA's quarterly risk assessment of the European Union insurance industry. With the implementation of the Solvency II regime in January 2016 substantial improvements as regards the risks' quantification and the reporting standards were introduced. The enhanced data of all (re)insurance undertakings subject to the Solvency II regime is the basis of the newly developed and improved analytical Risk Dashboard. The new Risk Dashboard will be further developed in the course of 2017.

This new and first Risk Dashboard based on Solvency II data summarises the main risks and vulnerabilities in the European Union insurance sector through a set of risk indicators of the third quarter of 2016. This data is based on financial stability and prudential reporting collected from 93 insurance groups and 3,076 solo insurance undertakings. The previous Risk Dashboard relied on Solvency I data provided by 32 large insurance groups in the European Union on the basis of best effort.
