Own Risk and Solvency Assessment ORSA is an annual internal process undertaken by insurers intended to manage the risk management characteristics and profile of an insurance company. It is a procedure intended to assess the adequacy of enterprise risk management (ERM) and solvency positions. ORSA was presented as a component of the Solvency II routine in Europe. The Solvency II is a directive in European Union law which regulates the EU insurance, primarily determining the amount of capital that insurance companies must hold to minimize the risk of insolvency. Since then, numerous nations outside of Europe have adopted the idea of the ORSA, either as a feature of a kind of Solvency II routine or as a forerunner to more extensive dissolvability enactment.
