    The main causes that lead to insurer’s solvency issues such as the underwriting, investment or reinsurance deficiencies have remained the same over time. However, their incidence is increasing, as well as their complexity. Solvency II, the latest directive in this field is intended to be the legislative act that will settle the solvency issue on the European insurance market. The Solvency II Directive will lead to a new approach to the supervision process at the common European level, based on economic principles for assessing the assets and liabilities. It will use common principles when taking into account the multitude and variety of risks to which the company is exposed. These will form the basis for establishing the level of the capital and updating the calculation methods for the capital of the insurance companies under unusual circumstances. The article summarizes the Directive and describes some difficulties arising in connection with its rendering and implementation at the Member State level.
