 How can Insurers and Reinsurers make the best of Solvency II ?

By Cyrus Amaria and David Niddam

Cyrus Amaria and David Niddam explain how Lyxor can help and assist insurers and reinsurers in making smart, cost-effective and absolute return investments in this new and somewhat complex regulatory environment.
