Accordingly, multi-regression model used and found that profitability and liquidity insignificantly affect solvency, in converse each of financial leverage, investment and claims have a significant positive impact on solvency. accordingly, we recommend the Palestinian insurance companies to invest in surplus and liquidity, in addition to take a strict policy to accept risks.
