IAIS has published its mid-year report on global reinsurance. The report concentrates on macroprudential supervision in insurance and reinsurance. IAIS carried out a survey to establish the extent to which insurance supervisors carry out macroprudential supervision. It has concluded approaches differ between regulators and that there is a critical knowledge gap in global insurance-specific macroprudential oversight.
