EIOPA has published the results of its long-term guarantees assessment (LTGA), which ran from January to March 2013. The Council, Commission and EP had asked it to conduct the assessment in preparation for the adoption of Omnibus 2. EIOPA has made a number of suggestions for change to certain aspects of the long-term guarantee package. The Commission welcomed the report, saying the conclusions would be helpful in the context of driving ahead with both Omnibus 2 and Solvency 2.
