On 15 September 2014, fund and asset management associations in the UK, Germany and France published a draft template for Solvency II-related data exchange between (re)insurers and investment management companies. The template, jointly produced by the Investment Management Association in the UK, the BVI in Germany and Club AMPERE in France, is designed to streamline Solvency II compliance. The expectation is that the template will ensure that investment management companies (obliged under Solvency II to inform (re)insurers of the portfolio composition of managed funds) provide (re)insurers with information meeting Solvency II requirements. The template is subject to further refinement (including a review at the end of 2014).
