  3. 3. 1. What Is AREA XXI? AREA XXI is an actuarial consultancy headquartered in Madrid, with a network of 40 independent, self employed consultants in 16 European and Latin American countries. We undertake work for a wide variety of clients in many markets. In Latin America clients include the local subsidiaries of some of the largest Spanish banks and insurers as well as one of Europe´s largest reinsurers. In Spain and elsewhere in Europe clients are generally 2 nd tier smaller insurers and also leading auditors and reinsurance brokers. AREA XXI believes it offers a considerably better deal to clients than its competitors. Unlike the major consultancies, we do not have a huge legacy cost structure, nor huge overheads. Our flexible structure enables us to offer services at the highest quality standards but at more affordable prices than our competitors. In today’s environment where control of expenses is ever more important, we believe this is a significant factor for companies to consider.
  4. 4. 2. What Can We Do For You? Solvency II Solvency II is now an inescapable issue for all insurers operating within the EU, including captives, direct insurers and reinsurers. As Solvency II is due to come into force within a few years, now is the time to start making plans for its idiosyncrasies if these have not been already made.   Solvency II consists of a wide ranging carrot and stick approach according to the composition of an insurer’s book of business, the reinsurance arrangements in force, the nature of its assets, etc. Many insurers will be forced to make important changes in their businesses to avoid the penal provisions of Solvency II if they wish to continue to meet regulatory requirements regarding capital adequacy.   Many of these changes cannot be made overnight - or rather they can be made overnight only at high cost, for example the sale of a property or changes in reinsurance arrangements. It is highly preferable to know about such matters well in advance to allow time for planning. Accordingly, AREA XXI advises all clients to submit their data through the CEIOPS QIS4 spreadsheet, even if they do not wish to participate in the CEIOPS survey itself.   AREA XXI have consulting actuaries with ample experience in this task for both life and non-life companies.
  5. 5. 2. What Can We Do For You?
