Morningstar Solvency II Data Solutions for Insurers

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 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 meets your needs for Solvency II.




Full Holdings
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.
Furthermore we have access to over 4.5 million historical portfolios that can be delivered for research purposes.
Our full holdings are available through Morningstar On Demand, our proprietary delivery mechanism, which is based on Webservices and the data is delivered in XML. On Demand is available 24/7 and a notification system will allow your systems to know when new data has been made available. We can facilitate tailored formats and distribute the data via most known media.
