The international Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) has published a report on insurance and reinsurance securitisation as its first mid-year edition of the Global Reinsurance Market Report.

The report aims to contribute towards a better understanding of the part played by insurance in contemporary financial markets, in particular addressing the role played by insurance securitisation as a building block of alternative risk transfer (ART).

The report identifies and discusses recent developments in insurance securitisation and key differences and similarities with banking securitisation - in particular looking at regulatory, supervisory and operational aspects.
