Capital allocation and risk appetite under Solvency II framework

Submitted on 7th September 2017

The aim of this paper is to introduce a method for computing the allocated Solvency II Capital Requirement (SCR) of each Risk which the company is exposed to, taking in account for the diversification effect among different risks. The method suggested is based on the Euler principle. We show that it has very suitable properties like coherence in the sense of Default (2001) and RORAC compatibility, and practical implications for the companies that use the standard formula. Further, we show how this approach can be used to evaluate the underwriting and reinsurance policies and to define a measure of the Company's risk appetite, based on the capital at risk return.
