Morningstar Solvency II Data Solutions for Asset Managers


The Solvency II regulation calls for all insurance companies with operations in Europe to report all their assets on a quarterly and annual basis. They are asked to either drill down to underlying holdings or pay a solvency premium for holding their capital in non-transparent assets. Morningstar recognises that the Asset Management industry will have a heavy burden of reporting imposed on it for this reason. Morningstar database can add the look-through transparency to fund positions required due to our longstanding mission of collecting full holdings data. As the regulation calls for high quality data, choosing a partner that has the history and global quality standards of Morningstar is pivotal to meeting the requirements of this regulation.
Our core competency is taking in raw investment data and by mapping it to our unique master list database, adding calculations and delivering data via our proprietary delivery mechanisms – we are able to offer you a streamlined solution that helps you meet your Insurance client needs for Solvency II.


Portfolio Holdings Distribution
Morningstar has been acquiring full holdings on funds for 25 years. In this time we have built a leading capability around the processing of data and have a highly automated and globally structured management collection process. This ensures that data is processed in a timely manner to a very high quality standard. Today we process full holdings information on all legal types globally using the same processes ensuring the same comparable data across the full range. This ability progresses from single funds to fund of fund portfolios.
Using this capability tied with our flexible data delivery capability, we are able to help Asset Mangers disseminate their portfolio holding’s data in a timely and efficient manner to all of their Insurance clients. We can facilitate tailored formats and distribute the data via most known media.
Portfolio Holdings Distribution can be combined with:-
  • Suppression
  • CIC & NACE Mapping
  • Morningstar Mapping Service
Entity Master Mapping Services
We have the capability of mapping any type of portfolio or list of investments utilising our proprietary system developed for fund holding identification. The system is highly automated and built on our strong validation procedures utilising our global structure and capabilities. We take in portfolios from our clients and pass them through our system and review the results and then validate what hasn’t been processed automatically. For Solvency II this could be used for mapping the investments on the balance sheet or identifying Legal Entities to calculate concentration or exposure risk, either as the starting point of the reporting process or as a validation.
Master Mapping Services can be combined with:
  • Portfolio Holdings Distribution
  • CIC & NACE Mapping
  • Suppression
An important capability to ensure that Asset Managers are comfortable sharing their Portfolio Holdings data is the capability to suppress data by Time, Holdings or Client. We ensure the portfolio data only reaches the users when they have the right to see the information. This proven capability is already in use for our work with a national asset management trade association.
Suppression can be combined with:
  • Master Mapping Services
  • On Demand, Full Holdings
  • Morningstar Reference API
CIC & NACE Mapping
Morningstar can offer a complete mapping to both the CIC as well as the NACE standard. We have mapped all the securities in our global master list which consists of over 9 million investments. Our master list is constantly growing and we commit to making new mappings as unknown instruments come in to our systems. We utilise our global network of analysts to ensure our mappings are of the highest quality.
CIC & NACE mappings are made available via:
  • Portfolio Holdings Distribution
  • Master Mapping Services
