DG FISMA (Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union)

Directorate D - Regulation and prudential supervision of financial institutions

Unit D4 Insurance and Pensions

DG FISMA (Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union) is responsible for initiating and implementing policy in the area of financial markets regulation and integration.

The vacant post is in the Unit responsible for insurance and pension funds, within a small team of seconded national experts and administrators from the European Commission. The main area of responsibility will focus on the Solvency II project.
Solvency II, in application since January 2016, reforms prudential supervision of insurance and reinsurance undertakings in Europe. It is based on the risk profile of each individual insurance company in order to promote comparability, transparency and competitiveness. Solvency II is also key for the ongoing Capital Markets Union initiative which aims to remove barriers to investment in the EU.

Evaluation and review of Solvency II will be the primary task, and possibly amendments to Solvency II implementing rules. The Commission already announced its intention to review by 2018 the standard formula for the calculation of capital requirements. In addition, further improvements to the treatment of investments creating jobs and growth are progressively introduced, to ensure that insurers remain institutional investors contributing to the Capital Markets Union, while maintaining sufficient policyholder protection.. The expert will conduct analysis and prepare policy recommendations on insurance and reinsurance matters, brief the Director General or the Commissioner when they meet with stakeholders, and participate in high-level meetings, under the supervision of an official.
The expert will also occasionally participate in public conferences about topics relevant to his areas of responsibilities. The post involves regular contacts with EIOPA and participating in EIOPA's working groups.
The selected expert may be asked to work on other insurance or reinsurance topics including international matters.
