Silverfinch, part of the MoneyMate Group, was born out of an initiative with Europe’s fund management industry groups to help companies cope with an expected inundation of requests for information from insurers to meet their regulatory reporting requirements under the new Solvency II regulations; a key requirement of the rules due to come into effect in 2016 is for insurers to identify underlying holdings in any funds they own. Silverfinch allows fund managers to seamlessly and cost-effectively service their insurance clients’ needs, while also providing information to fund managers about their clients and the ways they invest in their funds. Silverfinch makes sure that only clients nominated by the fund managers can access sensitive information on holdings. Unlike data vendors, our fund manager partners retain full control over their information. See website for more information.

Insurance Regulatory Capital

Insurance Regulatory Capital (IRC) offers subordinated debt as a capital solution to mid-sized insurance companies. Sub debt is eligible as regulatory capital under Solvency II and is specifically constructed to be a hybrid instrument between debt and equity.  As such, insurance companies receive all the benefits of debt (tax deductible, fixed rate, long term but finite) without the drawbacks of equity (dilution of control, expensive, high administration, non-flexible).

In addition, under new Solvency II guidelines sub debt instruments are designed to alleviate financial pressure in times of stress.  With the Solvency II deadline looming demand for subordinate debt is increasing rapidly. IRC’s subordinated debt product is tailored to match the requirements set out in the regulations for Tier 2 capital under Solvency II. See website for more information.
