The path to Solvency II Wire Data

Solvency II Wire Data is an innovative insurance database of the Solvency II SFCR data provided by Solvency II Wire.

The database grew organically out of the activities and expertise acquired by Gideon Benari, editor and founder of Solvency II Wire, and the Solvency II Wire team.

The timeline traces the steps that led to the development of the database and its pioneering and market leading approach to processing and delivering the Solvency SFCR and QRT data.
