Insurance Europe has called for more detail on the policy measures for Globally Systemically Important Insurers (G-SIIs) consulted on by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors’ (IAIS). It says a methodology for identifying systemically risky activities is needed. Only non-traditional non-insurance activities should be subject to segregation or account for higher loss absorbency requirements, and these measures should only be considered as a last resort. The Institute of International Finance (IIF) has also issued a statement in response to IAIS’s consultation where it shares Insurance Europe’s concerns over the potential introduction of blanket capital requirements to global insurers, which would reduce efficiency at risk pooling.
