According to Irdai guidelines, all companies are required to maintain a solvency ratio of 150% to minimise bankruptcy risk. Solvency ratio helps identify whether the company has enough financial buffer to settle all claims in extreme situations. Hence, it is a good indicator of an insurance company’s financial capacity to meet both its short-term and long-term liabilities.
The solvency margin is calculated by comparing a company’s obligations to its current assets. To put it another way, the solvency ratio is computed by dividing a company’s after-tax operating income by its debt liabilities.
Solvency Ratio = (Net Income + Depreciation)/Liabilities
The solvency ratio defines how good or bad an insurance company’s financial situation is on defined solvency norms.
