    Edwards Wildman's Chris Finney Tells Solvency II Wire that 'Solvency II and the Proposed UK Law Not Fully Aligned' ...

    Chris advises insurers, reinsurers and (re)insurance brokers on UK and European regulatory issues.

    Chris has been recommended by the UK Legal 500 since 2012, which notes, for example, that he: is an “FSA alumnus”, has “excellent regulatory experience”, provides “thorough and responsive” advice across a range of UK and EU regulatory requirements, has “tremendous business and marketplace savvy”, and maintains “excellent relationships with regulatory agencies”.

    Chris is often asked to speak about, and comment on, current financial services regulatory issues, and to provide training on them. He is regarded as a “thought leader” on Solvency II, in particular.

    Insurers, reinsurers and brokers

    Chris’ recent experience includes advising:

    • A life assurer on its obligations under the PRA’s rules, if it chooses to establish two new funds in the Republic of Ireland;
    • An Irish life assurer, on its obligations under the UK regulatory system, both in the period before and after it begins to exercise its right to carry on business in UK on a cross-border services basis;
    • An insurer in an conglomerate on the scope of its UK regulatory permission, whether it is lawfully entitled (under current PRA rules and under Solvency II) to enter into a variety of insurance and reinsurance contracts, and (if so) on the correct classification of those contracts;
    • Concerto Vita Limited on the development of an innovative insurance product, which generates low cost regulatory capital for insurers and competitive returns for retail investors;
    • Fairfax Financial Holdings and its subsidiaries on the “acquisition of control” of a UK company in the American Safety Re group;
    • The Riverstone Insurance Group on the “acquisition of control” of Brit Insurance;
    • Ruxley Ventures on its response to the PRA consultations on Schemes of Arrangement for Solvent Insurers, and Capital Extractions from Run-Off Firms;
    • A German reinsurer on the meaning and effect of key parts of the amended Solvency II Directive and the March 2014 draft Delegated Acts;
    • A US reinsurance group on its successful attempt to persuade the UK regulators that they had misunderstood and were misapplying the third-country reinsurance branch provisions in Solvency II, saving the client in excess of $450m;
    • The US subsidiary of a Dutch life insurer on Solvency II’s “Key Functions” regime, and the interaction of Solvency II’s Pillar 2 requirements with the “three lines of defence” system of internal governance;
    • An international reinsurance group on the identity of its group supervisor for Solvency II purposes, as well as on the advantages, disadvantages and mechanisms that could be used, to switch from one group supervisor to another;
    • A UK insurance subsidiary of a US insurer on the meaning and effect of Solvency II’s group capital, group supervision, and group ORSA, requirements;
    • A UK insurer and reinsurer on the UK and international regulatory obligations it must satisfy before it begins to insure or reinsure risks and commitments situated in almost 60 other countries;
    • A UK mutual insurer on two Part VII transfers of insurance business;
    • Two captives and two mutuals on their applications for the cancellation of their Part 4A Permissions, and their winding up;
    • Several insurers and mutuals on the availability of, and their ability to rely on, Solvency II’s exemptions and transitional provisions;
    • An insurer about its proposed business activities, and whether they are consistent with the prohibition in INSPRU 1.5.13R;
    • Two European motor manufacturers, on the termination of their existing premium finance, break down service, and gap arrangements, and the negotiation and implementation of new arrangements with alternate providers;
    • Three UK brokers on their appointed representative arrangements, their right to passport from the UK into the Republic of Ireland and other related issues; and
    • An on-line retailer and an unrelated motor manufacturer on the status of their respective “extended warranties”, and whether they needed to be authorised as brokers or insurers if they wanted to continue to offer their extended warranty products in the same form.

    Chris also acts as the Independent Adjudicator for the FCA and Court sanctioned Card Protection Plan (CPP) Redress Scheme.

    Alternative investment fund managers

    Chris’ experience includes advising UK, Guernsey, Jersey and US domiciled private equity fund managers on their UK and European regulatory obligations, if they want to establish and manage an alternative investment fund in the UK or in mainland Europe; and if they want to raise capital from actual and potential UK and European investors.

    Crowdfunding platform providers

    Chris has advised 7 different companies on the establishment and operation of their crowdfunding and/or peer-to-peer lending platforms, as well as on their applications for a “Part 4A Permission” from the UK FCA, and/or on their Appointed Representative arrangements.

    Payday lenders and other credit providers

    Chris has advised 3 different credit providers on the strategic defence of volume claims alleging irresponsible lending by the credit provider concerned.

    Other experience

    Chris has advised funds and wealth management groups on their internal investigations into alleged insider trading and the giving of negligent advice, their reporting obligations to the UK regulators, and the development and implementation of their consumer redress schemes.
