Pillar II capital add-ons for solo and group undertakings. CRO Forum’s response to CEIOPS Consultation Paper no. 17: draft advice to the European Commission in the framework of the Solvency II project on Pillar 2 capital add-ons for solo and group undertakings We welcome this Consultation Paper from CEIOPS. The CRO Forum supports the inclusion of powers for a capital add-on in the Solvency II framework directive. However, we must emphasise that capital add-ons should be seen as a last resort as expressed, for example, in article 136(2) of the EU’s Capital Requirements Directive.
