On 5 July 2016, EIOPA confirmed that it will be launching an EU-wide thematic review of the market conduct of unit-linked life insurers.  The purpose of the proposed review is to identify potential sources of consumer detriment stemming from relationships between insurance companies and asset management service providers. The review will focus on issues including (a) monetary incentives and remuneration, (b) conflicts of interest, and (c) the process for structuring of unit-linked life insurance products.  EIOPA expects participating entities to report to it by September 2016; and expects to publish results in early 2017.
