Following his speech, Dr. Frank Grund will comment on the key statements, leading over to a general discussion. Key discussion topics will include the inconsistent application of Solvency II within Europe, adverse implications from the misalignment between Solvency II and local accounting standards as well as related challenges from the low yield environment.
