The Insurance and Reinsurance Stakeholder Group (IRSG) recently published the summary and conclusions of its ninth meeting (held on 28 October 2015).  Key points discussed included that (a) it is a matter for group supervisors to decide whether to apply sub-group supervision (and that EIOPA has developed guidelines to assist supervisors in deciding if this is necessary) and (b) there will be a public consultation on the implementation of the ultimate forward rate during 2017.
