StandRe is the standard model for the non-life insurance risk of reinsurers for the Swiss Solvency Test (SST). It has been used for the first time in 2018 for the calculation of the official SST results.
StandRe was developed by FINMA with involvement of the industry following the partial revision of the Insurance Supervision Ordinance in 2015. Previously, it had been mandatory for reinsurers to use an internal model (at least for insurance risk). The design of StandRe is shaped by the challenges posed to a standard model by the special characteristics of reinsurers, including potential global coverage, insurance of tail risks as a business model, very different risk situations, and limited data availability.
This talk will discuss the development of StandRe, the principles underlying its design, its main features, and the FINMA experience from its first use in the SST 2018. Please join our chapter event for an interactive discussion and the option to ask questions directly to the presenters.
