Symmetric adjustment of the equity capital charge

​​​​​​This page provides the following compulsory information to be applied now by EU insurance and reinsurance undertakings, as Solvency II entered into force on January 1st 2016.

The calculation of the symmetric adjustment based on the behaviour of an equity index built by EIOPA exclusively for that purpose. The legal requirements on the determination of the symmetric adjustment and of the EIOPA equity index are set out in the Directive 2009/138/EC (as amended by Directive 2014/51/EU), the Implementing Measures of that Directive, and also in the Implementing Technical Standard on the EIOPA equity index.
