Solvency capital requirement (SCR)

The solvency capital requirement is the amount of funds that insurance and reinsurance companies are required to hold under the European Union’s Solvency II directive in order to have a 99.5% confidence they could survive the most extreme expected losses over the course of a year. The SCR incorporates risks such as non-life underwriting, life underwriting, health underwriting, market, credit, operational and counterparty risks, and must be recalculated at least once per year.
