Solvency II Assisting insurance clients to construct internal models which not only fulfills the quantitative requirements for measuring capital adequacy (pillar 1), but also facilitates the client in running their businesses more effectively, focusing on the profitable areas. They are more likely to have cost-effective risk mitigation solutions in place in light of the company's qualitative and quantitative goals. With such a framework, the company can also evaluate the level of capital needed to protect against adverse events. They know that risks are being measured appropriately and thus are more likely to be managed efficiently and effectively. A full internal model is expected to be able to assess numerous effects that would not be easily quantified using a simpler standard model.
