UK Insurance Regulators & Solvency II

UK Insurance Regulators & Solvency II

The regulation of insurance companies has developed from the FSMA 2000 to the concept of ‘twin peaks’ regulation in 2010. Today the responsibility for regulation is split between the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority), the PRA (Prudential Regulation Authority) and the FPC (Financial Policy Committee).
Overview

As an essential element of the world of financial services, insurance companies are subject to strict regulatory governance in order to ensure their continuity and limit the risk of a major failure having a systemic impact on the system. In 2010 the UK regulatory landscape was changed with the implementation of the ‘twin peaks’ of governance by the Bank of England and the UK Treasury. Today the regulatory responsibilities are split between the FCA, PRA and the FPC.
