 The Actuarial Function Under Solvency II: Survey on the Role of the Actuary in Insurance
 By Groupe Consultatif Actuariel Européen
 The Framework/Omnibus Directive has established the Actuarial Function as part of the governance structure for insurance undertakings within the Solvency II system. The responsibilities outlined for the Actuarial Function cover a number of actuarial activities already carried out in many member states. The Groupe Consultatif carried out a survey under the auspices of its Insurance Committee to assess the readiness of the actuarial profession in Europe to meet the demands of the new system. This report outlines the results from the survey and summarises the situation using the results.
 The survey results cover four main topics:
        The number of professional qualified actuaries in insurance
        The current roles of actuaries in insurance
        The qualifications of actuaries to meet the current roles
       The current expectations as to the management of the Actuarial
 Function in Solvency II
 The survey results cover 20 European actuarial associations from among the members states of the EU, which include almost 90% by number of the total individual actuaries represented by the Groupe Consultatif. The 20 member states included in the survey are shown in Table 3 below. The following comments reflect a summary of the results as they relate to the four main topics.
 The survey can be seen in the context of the efforts of the Groupe Consultatif to assure the success of the Actuarial Function, which also includes the need to establish professional standards, the approach to reporting requirements and the important contribution by the Groupe to the preparation of the Solvency II framework
 from the very beginning of the project.
