PRA has issued a discussion paper seeking views on equity release mortgage valuation, capital treatment, risk management and associated matters. It is to consolidate views from across sectors on good practice for managing the risks introduced by investing in this asset class. PRA notes that some of the paper is specifically aimed at the insurance sector, such as discussion around restructuring equity release mortgages in connection with the Solvency 2 matching adjustment. Consultation closes on 27 May. (Source: PRA seeks views on equity release mortgages)
