Overview of Global Insurance Regulators

Overview of Global Insurance Regulators

In the second video in Sukhy’s series, she discusses the equivalent of the ‘Basel Committee’ in insurance; the International Association of Insurance Supervisors, or IAIS. She then outlines the Insurance Core Principles, or ICPs before introducing global insurance regulators from the European Union, United States and Asia.
Overview

Basel is viewed as the holy grail of banking regulation against which all local regulatory frameworks are measured. In a similar fashion to Basel, the IAIS is currently making a similar scene, through the development of the first global supervision standards for the insurance industry.

Key learning objectives:

  • What are the three stages of ICPs?

  • Why was Solvency 2 needed in Europe?

  • Understand the role of insurance regulators in the UK, the US and Asian countries

  • Understand the background and the need for IAIS
