'Chief Actuary or not Chief Actuary?' - that is the question

Since the publication of the draft EIOPA guidelines on the System of Governance back in June 2014, one question asked by many - or perhaps by a few, many times - has been: 'who will need to be notified to and approved by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) in respect of the actuarial function where the Solvency II actuarial function is outsourced?'
