Valuation for Solvency Purposes
The solvency calculation balance sheet is based on financial statements drawn up in accordance with Finnish Financial Accounting Standards (FAS) and adjusted in line with the solvency regulations. The financial statement figures are used as comparison data, but they are grouped according to the solvency calculation’s balance sheet structure.
The valuation principles for solvency calculation are based on the IFRS standard. The objective is to define fair value in accordance with the arm’s length principle. The most significant differences between capital and reserves in the financial statement and own funds in the solvency calculation stem from the difference in the valuation of investment assets, the valuation of technical provisions and the treatment of the equalisation provision.
