Ireland is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Irish regulatory system is fully in line with EU requirements. Detailed financial reports must be submitted to the Central Bank of Ireland periodically. Technical reserves must be maintained that match the total value of all liabilities to policyholders. A solvency margin over and above technical reserves must be held in respect of product lines. For more details please read the Guide to Financial Security & Policyholder Protection.
