A. Outsourcing of Actuarial Function

The introduction of Solvency 2 puts a considerable strain on the overheads for the smaller insurers operating in EU. By outsourcing the Actuarial Function, insurers that find it too onerous to maintain an in-house team, can meet their regulatory requirements at a lower cost and at the same time receive ongoing advisory support.
