Dual-site Sessional Research Event: The Future of Solvency II in the UK: Treasury Select Committee Debrief and Working Party Update

Following our written submission in November, the IFoA was invited to give evidence in person to the Treasury Select Committee (TSC) on their inquiry into the future of the UK’s insurance regulation; this took take place on 17 January.  The evidence given forms the basis of a special sessional meeting that will take place in two locations on Monday 23 January 2017.

You can view a recording of the full session via the Parliamentary TV service HERE.

This is a cross-practice sessional meeting, which will appeal to those with an interest in the future development of Solvency II in the UK, in the light of last year’s Brexit vote.  For the first time, the IFoA will be running this sessional meeting simultaneously between Edinburgh and London, with a mixture of a live video feed between the two sites and on-site presentations and discussions. 

The meeting will commence with a presentation of the TSC debrief from Andrew Chamberlain, Life Board Chair, the IFoA’s representative at the TSC evidence session. This will take place in person in London, with a live feed to Edinburgh. Each site will then hear directly from two IFoA working parties researching themes relevant to the TSC inquiry -  the Retrospective on SII and Transitional Measure on Technical Provisions working parties - followed by discussions in each of London and Edinburgh.  The sites will then be re-connected for a final dual-site discussion of the key points arising and an opportunity for Q&A.

As always, this sessional meeting will be filmed so if you are not able to attend in person, you will be able to view the video online later, either through the IFoA website or the IFoA’s YouTube channel.
