EIOPA has created a webpage for the EU-wide insurance sector stress test to be held in 2016. The 2016 exercise is tailored to assess the insurance sector’s vulnerabilities to a combination of market risk adverse scenarios. It will be based on a sample of solo insurance undertakings most vulnerable in a persistent low interest rate environment and a double hit scenario where, in addition to the low interest rates, asset prices are also stressed. ​​The webpage sets out a provisional timetable for the exercise, to be concluded in December.
